The WHO is launching the new web-based and mobile-based equipment Inventory and Gap Analysis (IGA) application. Join us in a webinar to learn how this application can ease up the burden of maintaining an updated cold chain equipment inventory and generate reports to identify where there are capacity gaps. This session will introduce you to the different functionalities of IGA and will provide an opportunity to learn from the experiences of current users.
The webinar will be held on 15th December at 10:00 AM Geneva time (CET).
