Imagine a world in which all children are protected by life-saving vaccines.
Energize the Chain is working to make this a reality.
Vaccines save millions of lives each year and are among the most effective ways to fight and eradicate infectious disease. To maintain their effectiveness, vaccines must be kept cold from the time they are manufactured to the time they are administered. This is referred to as the “cold chain”. In developing countries, where power is unavailable or unreliable, the cold chain breaks down and vaccine effectiveness is compromised.
Energize the Chain is working to insure that children around the world receive effective, life-saving vaccines. We are creating public-private partnerships with cell tower companies, ministries of health, USAID, EPI, and other organizations to access the energy, connectivity, and data needed to strengthen and extend the vaccine cold chain into the developing world. The lives of millions of children depend on it.
