Controlled Temperature Chain: Strategic Roadmap for Priority Vaccines

The Controlled Temperature Chain Working Group (CTC) has recently developed a Strategic Roadmap for Priority Vaccines, which addresses supply and programmatic issues, aiming for CTC priority vaccines to become licensed for CTC use and facilitating uptake of the CTC vaccine delivery approach.

This roadmap focuses primarily on four vaccine types selected by the CTC-WG and endorsed by Immunization Practices Advisory Committee (IPAC) in February 2017:

- Human papillomavirus (HPV);

- Oral cholera vaccine (OCV);

- Tetanus toxoid vaccine (including TT [tetanus toxoid] vaccine, Td [tetanus diphtheria low dose] vaccine, or other TT-CVs [tetanus-toxoid-containing vaccines]) and;

- Hepatitis B vaccine birth dose (HepB-BD).

These four vaccine types are the leading priorities of the CTC programme of work between 2017 and 2020.
