Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Network (VPPN)
An online community of practice (CoP) and resource portal for professionals and technical experts supporting national immunization.
The Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Network is the online community of practice (CoP) of the VPPEF and a resource portal targeted at professionals and technical experts supporting national vaccine procurement. Here members have an opportunity to build their vaccine procurement capacity and engage in peer-to-peer dialogue within the community of practice (CoP).
As a community of vaccine practitioners, our members receive and share content on market assessments, forecasting and planning, procurement strategies, tendering and contracting approaches, regulatory considerations, and industry needs and practices. Recent topics of discussion have also included COVAX, cold chain, planning and forecasting, regulatory systems, supply chain strengthening, vaccine-pooled procurement and budgeting and financing.
