Improving Vaccine Supply Chains in Mozambique Through Implementation of a Performance and Accountability FrameworkJune 2013
Vaccines save millions of lives each year and are among the most cost-effective health interventions available. However, one in five children are still without access to vaccines, resulting in an estimated 1.5 million child deaths each year and tens of thousands of permanent disabilities from vaccine-preventable diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia. WDI is partnering with VillageReach to understand how the implementation of a mechanism to improve accountability of vaccine program staff in three provinces in Mozambique can help enhance vaccine supply chain performance. This project will be used to inform and improve public sector vaccine delivery in other regions of Mozambique, as well as other countries.
