Background on the COVIDaction Vaccine Data Co-Lab

This call for proposals builds on the success of the Data Challenge for COVIDaction, which was launched nearly one year ago. COVIDaction invested in and supports a portfolio of tools that address COVID-19 data needs for Ministries of Health, National Statistics Offices, and others to provide evidence-driven policy decisions. As COVID-19 efforts shifted from detection and prevention to vaccine distribution, COVIDaction worked with COVAX GIS Working Group to launch the Vaccine Data Co-Lab to support LMIC decision-makers with tools required for equitable, transparent, and efficient vaccine delivery.
