Reaching the Final 20 Policy Paper Series

Part three of the Reaching the Final 20 Policy Paper Series: This VillageRecah paper addresses the components of the vaccine supply chain, with an emphasis on the role of system design and how key supply chain components fit together in the most effective manner.

To address the unique challenges of last mile distribution, VillageReach is engaged in a multi-year program in Mozambique to improve the performance of the vaccine supply chain, focusing on rural communities that represent over 50% of the country’s population. The approach – the Dedicated Logistics System (DLS), which uses task shifting, level jumping, dedicated resources, and service delivery-level data to improve vaccine supply chain effectiveness and efficiency.
