Gavi, the Vaccine Alliancce has updated the Cold Chain Equipment ‘Technology Guide’, to support the appropriate selection of modern, efficient and reliable technologies. We wanted to let you know the updated CCEOP Technology Guide is available here (and attached) and will permanently be hosted on this page of the Gavi website.
The Technology Guide, which was complied through inputs from Alliance partners and technical asistance providers, provides an overview of equipment that is eligble for support through Gavi's Cold Chain Equipment Optimisation Platform (CCEOP). It also provides guidance on identifying the most appropriate equipment choices for each health facility to help ensure more facilities have adequate cold chain capacity from higher performing equipment that stays functional for longer periods of time. Equipment included in the Guide is PQS certified and meets additional platform eligibility requirements. The Guide is intended in particular for use in identifying CCE needs and solutions for health facilities and at lower levels of the cold chain.
The Technology Guide will be updated twice a year. Please contact Karuna Luthra (Gavi Market Shaping) with any questions.
