Tracking Effective Vaccine Management Indicators for Continuous Improvement of the Immunization Supply Chain in Uganda

Immunization supply chains play a critical role in improving health, saving lives, and reducing child mortality. Under-resourced and poorly functioning supply chains—the network of staff, equipment, vehicles, and data needed to get vaccines safely from manufacturer to health clinics—can restrict access to vaccines and put people at risk of contracting diseases. This case study examines the World Health Organization and UNICEF-supported Effective Vaccine Management initiative, the impact it has on immunization supply chains in Uganda, and the improvement plans required.
