20221204T1100 20221204T1700 Africa/Casablanca Sharing Learning from Polio SBC (Misinformation, Social Data and Conflict)

Over the past 30 years polio eradication action, including social and behaviour change, has received substantial investment and made demonstrable progress towards eradication. Though there has been remarkable progress, there have also been very significant challenges.

The event is focused on three key themes: The utilization of social data to inform and improve SBC programming; misinformation strategies and action; and SBC in conflict settings on which there is substantial polio learning; key polio eradication challenges remain; and, there is significant relevance to challenges faced by action across the full range of development priorities, including increasing routine immunization rates. 

The purpose is to share and discuss learning from polio SBC that can be helpful to both next steps and challenges for polio SBC and the work and priorities of people engaged in other development issues.
