Dear TechNet colleagues,
JSI in collaboration with SNTL Publishing and with support from Gavi the Vaccine Alliance are pleased to introduce to you Gaming Week! During the week of February 18th 2019, you will get a chance to play a System Design Game for Immunization Supply Chains which is based on the yeepa platform to test your skills and understand concepts of supply chain management. It can be played by anyone hoping to build their knowledge around key supply chain principles and management of health commodities from policymakers and program managers, to service providers, storekeepers, technical assistance providers, and public- and private-sector partners (not only those with experience in immunization programmes as the name of the game implies). You can play anywhere and anytime as long as you have your laptop, phone or any other internet connected hand-held device.
You will be playing against your fellow TechNet colleagues, IAPHL as well as John Snow Inc. (JSI) who have volunteered to form a group and enter the competition.
Register today to get ready for the games next week!

You will be playing against your TechNet colleagues that are online at the same time as you are as well as other participants from other groups.
How the game works:
The game takes the format of multiple choice questions. Each round consists of 6 multiple-choice question. Subsequent rounds are programmed to consist of 60% new questions and 40% repeated questions. You score points for getting questions right as well as how fast you respond. This is captured by the jackpot feature, located on the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
To maximize your points, you should click on the Jackpot feature prior to answering the question, if you are certain of the correct answer. The fastest player to answer correctly wins all the points in the Jackpot. However, should you answer incorrectly after clicking on the Jackpot, you lose ALL your accumulated points collected during the round.
The game will be activated on Monday February 18th 2019 at 9am East African Time (EAT) and ends on Friday February 22nd 2019 at 4pm (EAT). The player with the highest score by the end of the week will be profiled on IAPHL! Remember, the more you play, the more you stand a chance to win!
HAPPY GAMING! Best, Zoya Mohamed Supply Chain Analyst - JSI
