COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout: Executing an Effective and Equitable Strategy in Karnataka
Broadly the webinar focused on drawing attention and giving momentum to the humungous task of vaccination rollout that needs to be achieved in the ensuing months in Karnataka. The Webinar helped translate optimism to transformative action on the ground. A key output from this webinar will be a Policy Brief which will include some of the key discussions from the webinar.
The webinar had distinguished panelists to include Shri Jawaid Akhtar, IAS (Additional Chief Secretary, Health and Family Welfare Department, Government of Karnataka), Dr. Anupama Shetty (Mission Director, Biocon), Seema Kumar (Communications for Development Specialist, UNICEF) and Dr. Giridhar Babu (Professor and Head Lifecourse Epidemiology, PHFI). Dr. A. Ravindra (Chairperson PAC) moderated the session. The webinar was attended by around 40 participants.
The Public Policy Dialogue (PPD) is an initiative to advance the discourse on human development praxis. Specifically, PPD will generate actionable knowledge that can inform policy and practice in niche public governance challenges extant in Karnataka.
