    Developing a COVID-19 Vaccine

    Event Date: August 12, 2020

    The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives. Medical experts around the globe have said that what we each have known as normal life won’t fully resume until we have a vaccine, and that could take years. In this webinar, an expert panel will take you inside the race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. What’s involved in developing a vaccine? Why does it take so long? What pathways are being explored? What clinical trials are under way and when will they be completed? Once we have a vaccine, what’s involved in adding it to Canada’s national immunization program?

    Speakers:

    • Megan Bettle, PhD, Director, Centre for Regulatory Excellence, Statistics and Trials, Biologic and Radiopharmaceutical Drugs Directorate, Health Products and Food Branch, Health Canada
    • Monika Naus, MD, FRCPC, Medical Director, Communicable Diseases & Immunization Service; Medical Head, Immunization Programs & Vaccine Preventable Diseases, BC Centre for Disease Control
    • Dion Neame, MD, BCh, BSc, FRCPC, FAAP, Country Medical Lead, Country Medical Head – Vaccines, Sanofi Canada
    • Suzanne McGurn, President and Chief Executive Officer, CADTH

    Join the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) for the first event in a new, interdisciplinary webinar series: Synergies in Infectious Disease Modelling for Public Health.

    About this Event

    The Synergies Series harnesses the knowledge of experts from several disciplines and nations. Collaborators share research evidence, context-based insights, information on data availability, and practical tools to develop better infectious disease models and evidence-based public health policies for the control of infectious diseases. Together, participants raise questions of interest to public health that modelling can contribute to. The series begins with topics on COVID-19, with the potential to grow.

    SYNOPSIS

    In the context of a relentless global pandemic, the value of mathematical modelling to support policymakers in managing public health crises has never been more apparent. Models are being used to predict disease burden, simulate mitigation strategies, estimate the cost-effectiveness of interventions, and assess which vaccines to employ in particular populations. Such advantages are showing modelling to be a critical resource in pandemic planning and complex decision-making. However, the emergence of COVID-19 has also revealed the need for more effective model-based policies that meet the real-time challenges and surging demands of a pandemic-related emergency. And this will not be accomplished without 1) improving our understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of mathematical models, and 2) creating greater synergy among modellers and public health professionals.

    Dr. Amy Greer, Canada Research Chair in Population Disease Modelling and Associate Professor in the Department of Population Medicine, Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph, presents an overview of mathematical modelling for public health. Her presentation highlights the conventional methodology of simulation and models in the context of public health to address vital needs for pandemic-control policies. She will discuss the evidence produced by mathematical models, which play a key role in shaping policy decisions in pandemics. Dr. Greer draws from experience as a senior scientist with the Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control at the Public Health Agency of Canada to reflect on existing gaps between infectious disease modellers and public health colleagues. Her presentation will help identify opportunities for greater collaboration on optimal model-based policies.

    Join us for the live webinar and Q&A session, with follow-up discussion topics posted to the Mod4PH discussion forum.

    Access instructions will be emailed to all registrants and posted on this page prior to the event.

    SPEAKER

    Dr. Amy Greer is the current Canada Research Chair in Population Disease Modelling and Associate Professor in the Department of Population Medicine at the University of Guelph. Dr. Greer has previously held scientific positions in the Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control at the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. Her research explores the introduction, spread, dynamics, and control of infectious diseases in populations. She integrates empirical data with mathematical models to test the mechanisms leading to the epidemic spread of pathogens and identify optimal intervention and control strategies. Dr. Greer’s research aims to examine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of both public health and veterinary health interventions in order to make informed decisions regarding public health policy.

    Title: When shelter in place isn't an option - environmental health guidance for encampments during the COVID-19 pandemic

    Presenter: August 27, 2020 (6:00-7:00pm EST // 3:00-4:00pm PST)

    Presenter: Jade Yehia (Regional Built Environment Consultant, Island Health)

    When other options are not available, encampments may be temporarily necessary to provide shelter for those experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. While linkages to safe, secure, and permanent housing should continue to be a priority, in the interim, residing in an encampment presents specialized considerations requiring attention to minimize disease spread. This presentation synthesizes available evidence on environmental health risks associated with the physical environment in encampments, and best practices to prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, to serve as guidance for environmental health practice as an integral part of a multi-sectoral approach to ensure people stay safe and healthy during their time in an encampment.

    Jade Yehia is a specialist with degrees in Environmental Health, Human Geography, and a Master of Science (MSc) in Health Impact Assessment. She is an Environmental Health Officer (EHO) who has been Island Health’s Healthy Built Environment Specialist for the past seven years. Her work focuses on bringing a broad public health perspective to land-use planning regarding Housing and Homelessness, Air Quality, Climate Change, Neighbourhood Design and Environmental protection across Island Health portfolios and externally with local governments and community partners. Specific to encampments, she has developed policy, performed and supported site visits ensuring health and safety standards are met. She is passionate about creating healthier communities for all!
