Focus Area: 
Supply Chain & Delivery


We succeed when there is greater deployment of innovations in vaccine delivery, and when vaccine coverage is expanded in countries deploying these innovations. Our Investments in this Focus Area are spread throughout Africa.

We invest in organizations implementing these approaches:

  • Develop new ways to improve the storage, transportation, and distribution of vaccines
  • Strengthen vaccine delivery systems and processes

We measure these outcomes to assess our impact:

  • Increased coverage of vaccines for pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) and rotavirus
  • Increased coverage of complete vaccination to over 90%
  • Decreased dropout rates between first to third diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT) vaccinations to below 10%
  • Increased cold chain equipment uptime to over 90%
