At a World Health Organization conference in Panama, The Geneva Learning Foundation is hosting an Innovations Café today.

The session’s title is “Connected learning to accelerate local impact at global scale: Year 1 of the Movement for Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030)”.

What is the Movement for Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030)?

Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030) is the world’s strategy, adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2020, to achieve the global goals for immunization.

In March 2022, The Geneva Learning Foundation (TGLF) launched a call to form a movement in support of IA2030.

By June 2023, over 16,000 health workers were participating.

More than 80% work in districts and health facilities and over half are government workers.

70% work in fragile contexts such as armed conflict, remote areas, urban poverty, and other challenges.

This ground-up commitment has the potential to complement the top-down work of the IA2030 global partners, if this community of practitioners is recognized, empowered, and listened to by global health agencies and donors.

In today’s session, you will hear first-hand from IA2030 Movement Members.

How has participation in this Movement helped them to better serve the immunization and primary health care needs of the local communities they serve?

In Year 1 of this Movement, we demonstrated the feasibility of establishing a global peer learning platform for immunization practitioners, with the creation of a movement of more than 10,000 health workers in support of IA2030 goals. Learn more about Year 1 outcomes.

In Year 2, as the Movement continued to grow rapidly in over 100 countries, we generated evidence of practitioner demand and public health impact, captured in academic papers and multiple detailed case studies. Request your invitation to the IA2030 Movement’s Knowledge-to-Action Hub to get access to research outputs.
