Abstract Access to immunization varies greatly across the world. In order to increase vaccine coverage, the required vaccines need to be able to reach the targeted population. However, in low- and middle-income countries, this often turns out to be a challenging task. This article provides a literature review on vaccine distribution chains in low- and middle-income countries and consists of two main parts. The first part elaborates on the characteristics and challenges inherent to such distribut...

Many rigorous flow models have been developed to support the design of manufacturing supply chains. However, supply chains supportive of Access to Medicines (ATM), like vaccine supply chains, impose considerable additional challenges on this design process. The incorporation of a broader base of stakeholders delivers a balanced set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and substantially enhances the societal and human impact of the ATM supply chain service delivery. To evaluate such a set of KPIs...

Previous research has integrated multi-echelon inventory management into the design of a responsive supply chain by the use of the guaranteed service approach. We build further upon this work by integrating the production capacity and product flow to minimize the supply chain's inventories. The production capacity is modeled with a queuing network to handle the variability of the batch production processes as well as the demand variability. We test and validate our model with adapted instances f...

Robust DEA-based approach for multi-criteria decision-making developed.Partial views of DEA envelope curves provide instructive decision support.Enhanced aggregate planning approach for stochastic environments developed.Demand variability drives outsourcing volumes and reduces internal batch sizes.Higher setup variability increases insourcing volumes and average batch sizes. Manufacturing outsourcing is a key industry trend towards greater operations effectiveness and is related to the discussio...

Abstract In general, vaccines are recognized as an important means to protect populations against infectious diseases. We show that vaccines do not behave like commodity goods and elaborate on the key issues for vaccine supply chain design. This paper reviews the literature on model-based supply chain network design in order to identify the applicability of these models to the key issues of the design of a vaccine supply chain. We study whether the decisions at strategic, tactical and operationa...

Many rigorous models have been developed to support the design of humanitarian supply chains. Supply chains supportive of Access to Medicines (ATM), like vaccine supply chains impose considerable additional challenges on this design process. We embed these models in a broader stakeholder based framework. This will substantially enhance the societal and human impact of the ATM supply chain service delivery. This broader base of stakeholders will deliver a balanced set of Key Performance Indicator...
