Getting medicines to the middle of nowhere: Chris Wright at TEDxTacoma

Up to one-third of the world's population has limited access to affordable, quality medicines. Chris Wright has been working in international development for over 20 years and has been with John Snow, Inc. (JSI) since 2002, working to address this problem. He focuses on public health supply chain management to improve access to medicines, contraceptives, and vaccines, optimizing supply chains, strengthening logistics MIS and data transparency, and developing human capacity for supply chain management in resource-limited countries.

As Deputy Country Director for Systems Strengthening in Tanzania from 2010--2012 and in Nigeria 2008--2010, he oversaw a broad portfolio of technical assistance activities to strengthen health commodity supply chains in the public sector. These included support to the HIV, laboratory, and TB commodity supply chains, and capacity building for the Tanzania Medical Stores Department (MSD) and the Nigerian Federal Central Medical Store, and other health workers involved in managing health commodities. Wright also oversaw the implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning system for MSD in Tanzania, and conceived and led initial development for an innovative electronic logistics management information system (eLMIS). Wright has recently taken a keen interest in opportunities to better integrate vaccines and cold chain logistics into other public health supply chain systems. He has worked in over 20 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.

Prior to his career in public health, Wright developed and produced creative communication media and live marketing and product demonstration events for clients in the high tech sector. This evolved out of a decade of professional theater experience first as a technician, then as a writer, performer, director and producer of social and political satire reviews and improvisational comedy. Wright lives with his wife and two sons on the Hood Canal.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Forecasting is a critical supply chain activity that links information on services and commodities from the facility level with program policies and plans at the national level, and is then used to inform higher level decision making on the financing and procurement of commodities. Forecasting is a complex activity in that it involves using hard data to make mathematic calculations, but it also involves using contextual clues to make judgments and predictions. The dual use of both "art and science" in the forecasting process is the main focus of this video. The video combines animated teaching segments with commentary from field experts who share their wisdom, experiences, and advice on this interesting topic.

Development of an affordable, effective vaccine against meningitis A is a milestone in public health. The new vaccine, the result of a partnership between PATH and the World Health Organization called the Meningitis Vaccine Project, has the potential to stop a disease that regularly kills or disables thousands in Africa. Now, we must make sure that those who need the vaccine get it.

James Vesper reviews the critical aspects of documents, records and record management. Documents like procedures, protocols, methods, and specifications provide instructions so people can perform tasks and make decisions safely, effectively, compliantly, and consistently. Records, such as batch manufacturing records, cleaning logs, and laboratory data sheets and notebooks provide evidence that actions were taken and decisions were (hopefully) made in keeping with procedures and GMP expectations. Reports, another type of documentation, provide specific information on a particular topic (like an investigation or one aspect of product development) in a formal, standardized way.

Vaccines: A Preventable Fate, by Venetia Dearden

Twenty percent of all the babies born in the world each year—the equivalent of nearly five times the children born...
Twenty percent of all the babies born in the world each year—the equivalent of nearly five times the children born yearly in the United States—are not getting the basic vaccines they need to be protected from killer diseases, such as measles. And that’s why Venetia Dearden traveled to West African nation of Mali with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to see firsthand the importance of vaccines to families and the lengths to which they must go to get them. When MSF teams stage vaccination campaigns in the West African nation of Mali, mothers will come from hours away, sometimes days away. In the first year of their life, children must receive vaccines five separate times. In certain parts of the world, it can be extremely difficult for children and their caregivers to come so often if they live far away from a vaccination point or can't afford the cost of transportation. As in many other countries, these women, who are overwhelmingly the stewards of their families when it comes to health issues, want the protection vaccines can provide them and their children against several potentially deadly diseases that plague the region. In the best-case scenario, MSF and other agencies would bring the vaccines to them, wherever they lived, in whatever conditions. But this isn’t possible at present, because many of the vaccines available today are not tailored for the difficult environments in which they must be used. To give but one example: establishing and sustaining cold chain is very difficult in places where electricity is hard to come by, to say nothing of ice. That’s why MSF has been advocating for a global approach to vaccine development and dissemination that takes into account the conditions in the countries where these vaccines are most needed to half preventable deaths, as well as the particular strains of diseases found in various locations. Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), VII Photo, and UNION HZ present FATAL NEGLECT, a six-part documentary film project, that tells the stories of millions of patients left behind by the global health revolution. In Fatal Neglect: The Global Health Revolution’s Forgotten Patients, VII photographers Seamus Murphy, Venetia Dearden, Ron Haviv, and John Stanmeyer document the impact of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, the three deadliest neglected tropical diseases—(visceral leishmaniasis (kala azar), Human African Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), and Chagas—and vaccine-preventable diseases. The award-winning photojournalists traveled to Mali, Paraguay, South Sudan, and Tajikistan to capture the stories of frontline health workers trying to fight diseases that affect millions of people and kill hundreds of thousands each year yet garner little attention from drug developers, policy makers, or the mass media.

Children are now protected with 11 vaccines; up from six vaccines a decade ago. The price of vaccinating a child has sky-rocketed. It cost $1.37 to vaccinate a child 10 years ago, now it's $38.80. That's a whopping 2,700 percent increase. So how do we decide how many vaccines children need? Is it based on how much money you can make, or on how many children's lives can be saved?

"Facing Meningitis" - Texas Children's Hospital

This educational and compelling video conveys the importance of young people receiving the meningococcal meningitis...
This educational and compelling video conveys the importance of young people receiving the meningococcal meningitis vaccine before going to college. Since adolescents ages 16 to 21 have the highest rates of meningococcal meningitis, the video tells the story of two college students: Jamie Schanbaum, a University of Texas student who had both of her legs amputated because of meningitis in 2008, and Nicolis Williams, a Texas A&M University student who died in early 2011 from the disease.

This video also features the parents of Nicolis Williams, a Texas A&M University student who died in early 2011 from the disease during his junior year. Williams' father, Greg Williams, recalls "Nick, in a period of hours, went from a healthy, vibrant young man to being brain dead."

"The good news is that meningococcal meningitis is vaccine preventable and that the vaccine is currently available at many primary care offices, retail pharmacies, public health departments and campus health clinics to make it easiest for the student," said Dr. Carol J. Baker, (http://texaschildrens.org/Locate/Doctors/Baker,-Carol/) who is the executive director of the Center for Vaccine Awareness and Research at Texas Children's Hospital and a professor of pediatrics and of molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine. "Even though there's a new law requiring incoming students to get the meningococcal vaccine, the goal of this video is to educate parents and students about the disease and the vaccine, and then persuade them to make the right choice. "

"We know that one in seven college students who get meningitis will die. What makes the video impactful is that any student or parent can quickly see that it could happen to them," said Dr. Julie A. Boom, (http://texaschildrens.org/Locate/Doctors/Boom,-Julie/) who is the director of infant and childhood immunization for the Center for Vaccine Awareness and Research and an associate professor of pediatrics for Baylor College of Medicine. "This video is a great tool for organizations, healthcare associations and vaccine advocates to use when educating the public about meningitis vaccination."
