Pharma: Delivering the Covid vaccine in Africa

16 February 2021 11:10 - 11:50

With the pharmaceutical manufacturing sites for the Covid vaccines located in Europe, the Americas and Asia - how do we ensure African nations aren’t forgotten when it comes to roll out? This session will explore the logistics of moving vaccine doses across the African continent equitably and cost effectively. We’ll also discuss the infrastructure demands on African stations who will need to store and process temperature-controlled doses at speed while operating on reduced strength workforces. How does Africa deliver the Covid-vaccine?
