Blockchain Technology-Based Computer Application for Vaccine Supply Chain Management

Agnes Mindila of the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in Kenya will develop a software application along with blockchain technology to monitor the supply chains delivering vaccines from the producers to the health workers to ensure good quality vaccines are available when needed. They will use blockchain technology, which involves digitally storing information in blocks that are shared across a network of computers and can be continually updated. They will also develop and test a software application so that everyone in the supply chain can access and record information about a specific vaccine to improve transparency and ensure the vaccine is authentic.
