GAVI LAST MILE VACCINE DISTRIBUTION
Vaccines Last Mile Delivery Pilot In Uganda
National Medical stores executes warehousing and distribution of vaccines in Uganda. Currently they deliver up to the 111 District level DVSs (Tier2). Then using GAVI funds, the district vaccine stores (DVS) are expected to ensure that all received vaccines supplies are transported to the various health centers (Tier 3) under their coordination and planning. This current distribution model to a large extent has been noted to slow down delivery of vaccine supplies to health units in the villages, compromised the potency of vaccine in some instances and accountability of what has been delivered.
