Refrigerated vehicles to support Albania’s cold chain capacity

30 April 2022

Covid-19 Response

Delivering vaccines to all corners of the world is a complex task. It takes a chain of precisely coordinated events in temperature-controlled environments to store, manage and transport these life-saving products. This is called a cold chain.

Vaccines must be continuously stored in a limited temperature range – from the time they are manufactured until the moment of vaccination. This is because temperatures that are too high or too low can cause the vaccine to lose its protective power. 

WHO has supported Albania's cold chain capacity with two refrigerated vehicles, 102 refrigerators for the storage of vaccines and three cold rooms installed in Tirana, Durres, and Fier. WHO supports #healthcare facilities to provide quality and safe health services.
