    CHAI started supporting Indonesia’s Ministry of Health in 2017 to support the introduction of PCV in Indonesia through technical assistance for accelerating the PCV introduction. CHAI expanded its support to MoH in the context of Gavi transition finding and filling the gap, CHAI also provides support in other areas in immunization including cold chain and supply chain, to introduce effective management in logistics and cold chain for vaccine delivery.
