THE LAO PEOPLE’S DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OPTIMIZING VACCINE DISTRIBUTION AND SUPPLY CYCLES

This case study from the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) presents how the country implemented a COVID-19 vaccine supply and redistribution strategy based on local requirements and vaccine utilization. By using triangulated data on vaccination uptake, vaccine stock and COVID-19 epidemiological data to inform vaccine distribution and supply cycles, the country was able to optimise the use of vaccine stocks in the face of variable levels of vaccine uptake.
