Four key themes
In an era of mounting pressure on immunization supply chains, intensified by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the TechNet Conference will:
- Investigate the challenges faced by national immunization programs;
- Explore the ways in which these challenges are being met;
- Present essential strategies and tools for shaping resilient and adaptive immunization supply chains.
Sessions will be organised into four key themes, identified by TechNet members as critically important:
- Supply chain strategies
- Effective vaccine management
- Responding to Covid-19
- Cold chain equipment
Leveraging the latest video-conferencing technology, the virtual conference will recreate the vibrant atmosphere of previous conferences, and will feature a mixture of plenary and breakout presentations, complemented with a variety of more interactive and informal sessions. A Manufacturers Marketplace, where WHO PQS-prequalified cold-chain equipment manufacturers will answer questions about their products, is also planned.
About the TechNet Conference
The TechNet Conference enables immunization professionals to meet and discuss the latest developments in immunization service delivery and supply chain. The conference gathers together key stakeholders in immunization programmes from around the world: managers of national immunization programmes, staff members from WHO and UNICEF, vaccine and cold chain equipment manufacturers, representatives from public health agencies, technical partners, and independent experts.
Unlike previous face-to-face conferences, registration for this virtual event will not be restricted, and participation will require only an internet connection.
The conference is being organised in association with the Gavi Alliance’s immunization Supply Chain Steering Committee (iSC2), which has been established to help improve the timely delivery of safe and potent life-saving vaccines to children through robust, efficient and resilient supply chains in Gavi-eligible countries.
