VillageReach just released a new policy paper on the vaccine supply chain, “Data for Management: It’s Not Just Another Report“. The fourth in this series, this paper addresses the many challenges in data collection and quality, and discusses the global shift towards data visualization and utilization for improved decision making. The informed push system for vaccines in Mozambique uses dedicated logisticians for improved data collection; introduced an information system built on the OpenLMIS platform for improved data visualization and analytics; and systematized processes for better data utilization. These changes have led to a more efficient supply chain and higher vaccine coverage rates. Read more about this as well as other global innovations in this paper.
