Abstract

VillageReach documents how supply chain design increased access to vaccines in Equateur province, DRC. An independent study conducted by Acasus in July 2018 verified that average monthly consumption of vaccine doses increased 22 percent in the three health districts supported by VillageReach. The same study confirmed that there were no vaccine stockouts in these districts, while in one of the districts stockouts occurred 11 times in the six months prior to VillageReach’s supply chain intervention. Furthermore, a financial study conducted in February 2018 revealed a 34 percent decrease in total supply chain costs through the streamlined distribution of health commodities.
