    Promoting equity through supply chain design

    TechNet-21 is pleased to host a discussion with VillageReach and JSI on how supply chains can be adapted to be more responsive to the needs of under-served populations.

    TechNet-21 is pleased to host a discussion with VillageReach and JSI on how supply chains can be adapted to be more responsive to the needs of under-served populations. Too often, vaccines and other essential health products are not available when and where they are needed, particularly in under-served populations. With COVID-19 disruptions to routine immunization leaving an estimated 80 million children at risk for diseases like measles, diphtheria and polio, ensuring vaccines can reach all children is more critical than ever. VillageReach has developed a four-step guide for governments and implementing partners to purposefully consider equity in supply chain design, with a particular focus on reaching four populations: the urban poor, people living in conflict settings, remote or rural populations and migrants. Join us for a review of the guidance, and an example from JSI’s work of what these adaptations can look like in practice.


    SPEAKERS:

    · Tapiwa Mukwashi, Senior Manager, Supply Chain, VillageReach. Tapiwa has over 15 years of experience in public and private sector supply chains, and currently leads VillageReach’s Supply Chain for Community Health Workers program, implemented in partnership with Last Mile Health in Liberia.

    · Mariam Zameer, Manager, Health Systems, VillageReach. Mariam provides technical assistance on designing supply chains and building strong health systems. She is interested in a focus on equity to improve health systems for the most vulnerable, and health financing.

    · Wendy Prosser, Senior Technical Officer - Supply Chain, Immunization Center, JSI. Wendy provides technical assistance and strategic guidance on the immunization supply chain across JSI’s country teams to improve the design and management of the supply chain, create processes for data use for decision making, and apply global best practices to the country context.

    Hello TechNet-21 members,

    The UAV for Payload Delivery Working Group (UPDWG) invite you to attend a special, one and a half hour webinar, jointly hosted by UPDWG and TechNet-21 on integrating drones into immunization supply chains.

    Webinar: Integrating Drones into Immunization Supply Chains

    When: November 7, 2019 | 10-11:30 AM EST

    Description:

    Resilient, high-performing immunization supply chains (iSCs) are the basis for strong primary health care systems and the foundation for reaching global immunization coverage and equity targets. Yet efficient and reliable transportation for immunization products still remains a challenge in many low and middle-income countries. New technologies, such as drones, have the potential to revolutionize traditional modes of transportation but how do you know if these technologies are the right fit for your context?

    In this webinar, UPDWG and TechNet-21 will explore when integrating drones (or UAVs) into existing iSCs is feasible and how you can operationalize drones in existing immunization programs. UPDWG Members from UNICEF and VillageReach will share their experiences from Vanuatu and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in integrating drones transportation into the routine immunization supply chain. After the presentations, we will open the floor for a panel discussion with VillageReach DRC and former UNICEF Vanuatu staff.

    Hosts:
    Olivier Defawe - UPDWG
    Daniel Brigden - TechNet-21, The Technical Network for Strengthening Immunization Services

    Case Study Presenters:
    Jaime Archundia - UAS Global Lead, UNICEF
    Luciana Maxim - Sr. Manager, Research Evidence and Learning, VillageReach

    Discussion Panelists:
    Ridwan Gustiana - Health Specialist, Immunization UNICEF (formerly UNICEF Vanuatu)
    Archimede Makaya - Equateur Provincial Coordinator, VillageReach DRC
    Dieudonne Nsekela - Program Officer, New Technologies, VillageReach DRC
    Christian Vazquez - Civil Engineer, Transportation Engineering (formerly UNICEF Vanuatu)

    Registration: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/c638a89ac5516f0d8c34be5db4a05ad8

    We hope you can join us for this exciting webinar!
