Tracking PHSMs (Public Health and Social Measures) Data: Lessons Learned from the COVID19 Pandemic
March 3, 2021: Open to Public

Before the workshop, trackers interested in further collaboration met in the interim to flesh out solutions to address common problems and questions. Findings and work outcomes are written down in a concluding paper. At the second workshop, trackers i) presented the outcome and status of their cooperative endeavors and ii) discussed what organisational and technical challenges they face or are facing with regards to collaboration and cooperation iii) discussed how we can better collect data on health equity measures and iv) discussed how public health response to future pandemics may build on or learn from their work. International organisations, funding partners, journalists, and government representatives were invited to join this session and there was a Q&A with funding partners and IOs.
