Program Update: Mozambique DLS Performance Report January – June 2013

We recently posted the latest performance report update for the Dedicated Logistics System (DLS) in Mozambique, covering January – June 2013. You can find the report here.

The implementation of the DLS is conducted in close partnership with the Mozambique Ministry of Health and provincial governments to improve access to vaccines for millions lacking sufficient healthcare in four of the country’s ten provinces. The focus of the program and the metrics we track concern vaccine distribution, one of the most cost effective interventions to save a life.

These reports, which reqire government approval for us to publish, cover a variety of metrics including:
• Health centers visited and data reported
• Delivery of vaccines
• Stock outs of vaccines
• Functioning refrigerators
• Number of vaccines administered

For the health centers receiving deliveries of vaccines from the DLS, vaccine stock outs continue to be below ten percent. More than 95 percent of refrigerators at health centers are functioning within the range necessary to ensure vaccines remain at desired temperatures. At the same time, the timing of vaccine deliveries is not as high as our target … this is a work in progress as we assist the provincial ministries of health to absorb the logistics system into their budgets and workplans.
