SVEA CLOSSER: Hi. My name is Svea Closser. And I’m an associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Welcome to the model on data for decision making. In this lecture, we’ll explore the many different types of data collected by the Polio Program. There’s a huge breadth and depth to the data the program collects. And it can be used in many different ways. In this lecture, we’ll explore exactly what this data is, how it is collected, and how it can be used, with an eye to strategies that might be valuable across public health programs.
