Learn more about the Immunization Challenge and how Increasing routine childhood immunization rates in low-coverage areas could prevent millions of childhood deaths.
DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION
The vision of Tessellate Strategies Ltd. Is to track vaccine supply chains in Zambia using SMS messages. The principle is simple- when vaccines arrive in country, a sticker is applied to each box with a unique identifying code that drivers, stock movers, and healthcare workers text to the organization’s free number. Everyone along the way will be incentivized to text their toll-free number so Tessellate Strategies can collect data along the distribution chain. The team will develop an online platform that will integrate the data collected into an online, real-time tracking and inventory system. Their system will improve distribution efficiency and reduce vaccine wastage in the regions where they work.
