Maintaining proper temperatures for vaccine products is challenging, especially in places with extremely hot or cold climates, unreliable electricity, and weak transportation infrastructure. This three-part banner and these handouts display devices prequalified by the World Health Organization that assess vaccine handling quality, detect malfunctioning equipment, and prevent temperature fluctuations that can negatively impact vaccine potency and safety. These are part of the project Optimize traveling exhibit featuring immunization supply chain innovations being developed and tested around the world.
