“Kenya’s immunisation system has received a vital upgrade: 2,061 pieces of new and improved cold chain equipment – valued at US$ 7.09 million (1.1 billion Kenyan shillings) – will shore up preventive health care across the country’s 47 counties.

An unbroken cold chain – picture a network of fridges and cold boxes, spread across the entire planet – ensures that vaccines travel from manufacturer to destination, never dipping below or rising above their precariously narrow ideal temperature band. That permits the vaccines to remain potent – in other words, to save lives.”
