The Benefits of Redesigning Benin’s Vaccine Supply Chain

New vaccine introductions have put strains on vaccine supply chains around the world. This article, published in Vaccine, reports on a project with the Republic of Benin’s Ministry of Health that explored ways to improve their vaccine supply chain. Using the HERMES computation model, the authors examined structural redesign options and/or applying shipment loops to determine the most effective vaccine supply chain redesign. They found that structural redesign and shipping loops combined would have the most cost-saving results.
