What will it take to vaccinate the world against COVID-19 quickly and fairly?
Through the COVAX Facility UNICEF is leveraging its unique experience as the largest single vaccine buyer in the world by working with manufacturers and partners on the procurement of COVID-19 vaccine doses, as well as freight, logistics and storage.
Vaccines must be kept cool to remain potent. In South Sudan, UNICEF has, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, procured and installed most of the cold chain equipment in the country and is doing regular maintenance. UNICEF immunization programmes and in particular the cold chain aspects are supported by GAVI.
