Benin immunisation programme

Client - Agence de Médecine Préventive

Project Overview

Dulas continues to help improve the vaccine cold chain with solar refrigerators and icepack freezers. These have now been installed in 48 different countries.

Supporting immunisation in country

Dulas are proud to have the opportunity to work alongside the long established and respected Agence de Médecine Préventive (AMP) in the Comé region in Benin under the LOGIVAC project. LOGIVAC equips health zones in Benin to use solar-powered refrigerators. The solar refrigerators supplied by Dulas will serve the vaccine storage needs of the region, as well as provide valuable comparative data between solar battery driven and solar direct drive refrigerator systems.

Implementation

The team worked closely with AMP to provide a complete system that would meet the specifications required to deliver and successfully install the solar vaccine refrigerator equipment in the remote Comé region. The VC65-2 combined refrigerator freezer system with pole top mounted arrays were chosen to meet the local requirements and are robust enough to withstand the arduous journey to the health centre installation sites. Installation was successfully supervised by AMP trained local technicians, who also provided specific training to the users responsible for vaccine storage and delivery.

The project was a success and we are in discussion about further Rural Community Health Centre projects to install fridges in up to 3 other villages.
