4.2: Routinely produce and disseminate a Synthesis Report to inform stakeholders on 7-1-7 performance
7-1-7 data across public health events should be routinely synthesized in a brief report for dissemination to stakeholders and policy makers. Objectives of this Synthesis Report include:
- Providing a high-level summary of the most important learnings from 7-1-7 implementation. These can be prioritized based on observed frequency of bottlenecks or anticipated system-wide impacts of interventions;
- Informing stakeholders of performance against the 7-1-7 target;
- Reviewing progress in completing immediate actions selected to improve epidemic preparedness;
- Consolidating and disseminating long-term actions in order to inform planning and financing requests, including integration into NAPHS or similar plans and alignment with funder priorities.
The ideal frequency of Synthesis Report dissemination will vary based on the number of public health events within a jurisdiction, available human resources, and the periodicity of planning activities and funding opportunities that can support completion of remedial actions. At a minimum, a report should be developed and disseminated shortly before each planning cycle. The sub-steps below describe key components of a Synthesis Report.
