Timeline, deliverables and required outputs
The implementation of this scope of work will be during March 2022 – August 2022. The timeline, deliverables and outputs will be shown in the table below
An effective national response to COVID-19 requires collective efforts by the global community, multi-sectoral coordination at the national level, development partners, and other entities. The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) consortium is well positioned to support the Royal Thai Government (RTG), community partners, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
EpiC will provide support to strengthen the Thailand Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), provincial, and community capacity to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and mitigate its impacts on morbidity and mortality with key two objectives (1) accelerating widespread and equitable access to and delivery of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations; (2) reducing morbidity and mortality from COVID-19, mitigate transmission, and strengthen health systems, including to prevent, detect, and respond to pandemic threats
According to the first objective, under the Activity 1.4.1 “Improvements to Thailand’s COVID data quality” of EpiC Thailand workplan, it was found that Thailand’s key COVID-related data are scattered among many departments within the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH). The main data sources regarding COVID-19 vaccination and infection records are stored in multiple platforms from different governmental health sectors, including (1) the Ministry of Public Health Immunization Center, (2) the Department of Disease Control of Thailand, and (3) the Co-Lab Information System. This makes it extremely difficult for policy makers to gain insights and make data-driven decisions. Improvements in data quality and utilization, together with other system improvements will lead to better utilization of the data. This will enable timely data-driven decisions and better public healthcare ultimately.
This scope of work is aimed to improve COVID-19 data quality, compatibility, and utilization for Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health by mining into Thailand’s COVID-19 vaccination and infection history to obtain the vaccine efficacy of mixing vaccines from different manufacturers. Its 4 objectives are:
- To load data from multiple governmental public health organizations and process them into useable datasets which are ready for analysis (Data preparation)
- To train a model to obtain data-driven vaccine efficacy for the accuracy of the estimation (Vaccine efficacy model training)
- To visualize the obtained result on a dashboard to present the effectiveness of mixing and matching different vaccines against COVID-19 (Data visualization)
- To transfer the knowledge or insights gained to Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health through three (3) user training conferences and documentation (User training conference and documentation)
