Dulas recently worked with its partner Mada Green Power to successfully deliver and install 138 vaccine refrigerators and freezers in Madagascar.
The project is part of the Cold Chain Equipment Optimisation Platform (CCEOP), an initiative which is supported by several worldwide NGOs including UNICEF, Gavi and WHO. The initiative aims to improve the effectiveness of vaccine delivery in countries like Madagascar which experienced a devastating measles outbreak in 2019.
Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world and has a diverse terrain and subtropical climate. Delivering the equipment to challenging areas with poor infrastructure such as the Marolambo District meant coordinating deliveries by truck, ox and cart and finally by hand in order to successfully reach the most remote health centres.
