Dear all, I was recently made aware that WHO produced a documentary film on the achievement of Ghana in establishing "the first developing country vaccine cold chain, a model then reproduced by all countries in the World" (as described by Michel Zaffran in his recent forum post on John Lloyd). The film elaborates on the activities conducted by the MOH that are described in the WHO Chronicle on the same subject written by John Lloyd and available here:

I think the film was produced in the years immediately following so would be from the late 1970s, or possibly the early 1980s. I have scoured the WHO archives and unfortunately been unable to find it. I wonder if any TechNet old-timers might have a copy of the film and be able to share it? I would be happy to assist in digitising it if necessary.

The film is of great historical significance - see the following article available on the VaccinesWork website for context:

I've done some digging and I found this reference to the above video in the DG’s progress report for the 1978 WHA.

I found a reference to it in the WHO EPI Cold Chain bibliography from 1989:

Does anyone have access to a copy of this video?
