Increasing vaccine coverage and reducing under-five mortality through stronger immunization supply chains
In 2014, the Gavi Alliance partners developed the Gavi Immunization Supply Chains (iSC) Strategy focusing on strengthening country immunization supply chains. From the port of entry to the immunization in clinics, the supply chain is critical to ensure potent vaccines are available to the beneficiaries in an efficient manner.
The strategy is built on five fundamentals essential to strengthen the performance of immunization supply chains. The fundamentals are: Supply Chain Leadership, Continuous Improvement & Planning, Supply Chain Data for Management, Cold Chain Equipment and Supply Chain System Design.
Through the Gavi iSC Strategy, national immunization managers, implementing partners and other immunization supply chain experts will gain access to targeted technical assistance and guidance documents, tools, case stories and other material that can help them improve immunization supply chains in countries.
