Update on Stakeholder Analyses, one of the main activities of Work Package 5 (SWISS TPH)

The main objective of a stakeholder analysis is to examine the current and future organisational environment in a given setting. The knowledge produced in the stakeholders’ analyses is meant to be used to develop strategies to achieve successful stakeholders’ engagement.

Based on stakeholder engagements of Work Packages 3 and 4, there are four categories of stakeholders: “high influence, low interest”, “High influence, high interest”, “Low influence, low interest” and “Low influence, high interest”. The stakeholder analyses of WP5 also look at two additional features of the stakeholders: operational capacity and reputation.

Data were collected through an online survey and during the workshop of June 2023 (a report on the workshop can be found on the SAVING website: https://savingconsortium.org/saving-consortium-sets-up-community-of-practice-3/). This resulted in having 31 stakeholders with valid responses.

Analysis of the responses is currently ongoing; the findings will be disseminated in a report by October 2023 the latest. We here present two findings:

  1. Knowledge about SAVING is limited: almost one third of respondents reported to know a lot about the malaria vaccine, but not much about SAVING.
  2. The following three agencies were seen as being most influential: Ministry of Health, WHO, and to a lesser degree the FDA.
