Technical Specification of Cold Chain Equipment

Ministry of Health and Population

Cold Chain maintenance is an essential component of every immunization programme, without which delivery of immunization services is rendered impossible. For the safe storage and transportation of vaccine, cold chain equipment is a mandatory requirement. All equipment must be able to keep vaccines safely whatever the outside temperature, and however the climate varies at different times of the year. This means it is vitally important to use well-made, reliable equipment that at the very least, meets the minimum standards determined by WHO for vaccine storage and transport.
