Vaccine Supply & Logistics



During the “decade of vaccines” the introduction of new vaccines, the vaccination of groups beyond infancy and tackling the equity gap in providing vaccines to all has meant that outdated immunization supply chains have been overstretched and have outgrown their ability to cope. Join us in Washington to listen and learn from key thought leaders in this space, and showcase your solutions to challenges in vaccine storage, distribution, management and stock control to ensure that we achieve future global immunization goals.
