DPCP Snapshot: The Effects of Dose Per Container Change in Zambia


The Dose Per Container Partnership (DPCP) undertook quantitative and qualitative research in Zambia between January 2017 and July 2018 to examine the effects on the immunization system of administering the measles-containing vaccine (MCV) in 5-dose vials rather than the standard 10-dose vials. The Government of Zambia recommends lyophilized MCV at 9 months of age for the first vaccination (MCV1) and 18 months of age for the second (MCV2). This case study documents the effect of the change in dose per container in Zambia. This snapshot was written by JSI in 2020.
