Cold Chain Logistics Management Workshop

The ‘cold chain’ is a system of storing and transporting vaccines at recommended temperatures from the point of manufacture to the point of use. That is, the role of the cold chain is to maintain the potency of vaccines. There is also a concept called ‘reverse cold chain’, which is a system of storing and transporting samples at recommended temperatures from the point of collection to the laboratory. Vaccines are sensitive to heat and extreme cold and must be kept at the correct temperature at all times. Health workers at all levels are often responsible for maintaining the cold chain while vaccines are stored in the vaccine stores at the province and county levels, or while they are being transported to township and villages, and while they are being used during immunization sessions or rounds. More and more often it is becoming the logistician’s responsibility to manage the cold chain as a part of the supply chain.
