JSI authors Wendy Prosser, Gregory Roche, Marie Tien, and Benjamin Hatch partnered with UNICEF and Gavi to publish an article in Vaccine, Redesigning immunization supply chains: Results from three country analyses

Supply chains are essential for ensuring access to vaccines for preventable diseases. JSI partnered with UNICEF and Gavi to conduct an analysis of various supply chain scenarios in Guinea, Madagascar, and Niger to identify areas for potential improvement. 

Stakeholders from the Ministries of Health and immunization programs identified and prioritized five scenarios to model in each country, including aspects of integration, changing supply chain levels, delivering frequency, administration boundaries, and direct delivery. Similarities were found across all three countries, suggesting that immunization supply chains can become more efficient through design change. However, these changes and benefits need to be considered in each country’s specific context.
