Description and results


The project is increasing the cold chain capacity in Zambia in order to strengthen routine immunization and therefore combat the major disease killers of children. Specifically the project contributes to increasing the national cold chain capacity from 99,420 itres to 196,216 litres, which represents 60% of the national capacity. The CIDA contribution with other donors enables UNICEF to reach this target. This initiative helps Zambia to attract additional roll out of vaccines, including pneumococcal and rotavirus vaccines, from the GAVI Alliance once the cold chain capacity is improved. With this initiative, the 20 districts hardest to reach and worst performing are expected to be adequately covered for child immunization.
