Due to ongoing problems with the WHO website, and increased demand caused by the COVID-19 response, I have created a new topic page that lists the key ISC planning tools created by the WHO Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI). 

  • Cold Chain Equipment Inventory and Gap Analysis Tool - a planning tool for conducting and analysing a cold chain equipment inventory
  • Cold Room Temperature Mapping Tool - a tool for mapping temperatures in various types of cold chain equipment and dry stores, available in official United Nations (UN) languages.
  • EPI Logistics Forecasting Tool - a planning tool for national programme managers to conduct multi-year needs-forecasting for vaccines, safe injection supplies, storage and transport facilities.
  • Immunization Supply Chain Sizing Tool - a planning tool for national programme managers to estimate the size of the required supply chain infrastructure for vaccine storage and transportation at each level and facility.
  • Vaccine Volume Calculator - a planning tool for improving the accuracy of forecasting vaccine wastage rates based on service delivery settings.
  • Vaccine Wastage Rates Calculator - a planning tool for improving the accuracy of forecasting vaccine wastage rates based on service delivery settings.

This new list complements the list of core reference material published by WHO EPI that can be found here.

Hope this is useful.
