Vaccination is widely acknowledged as one of the most cost-effective and focused disease interventions. In addition, the unprecedented wave of new vaccines expected over the next decade has the potential to dramatically reduce the global burden of disease.
In 2013, CHAI launched a new vaccine program in Uganda to apply the expertise it has developed through global and other country vaccine teams to the Immunization landscape in Uganda. The CHAI Uganda team works closely with UNEPI (Ugandan National Extended Programme on Immunization) within the Ministry of Health and the national medical logistics provider, National Medical Stores; across four main focus areas which include improving management effectiveness and efficiency in the program management structure and approach within UNEPI, drive cold chain expansion and improvement, enhance forecasting, procurement and stock management processes and facilitate new vaccines introduction.
