Environmental Impact Minimization for Vaccine Supply Systems

Arunprakash Karunanithi of the University of Colorado Denver in the U.S. seeks to develop vaccine supply chain optimization software that evaluates not only direct costs but also indirect environmental and public health costs such as the greenhouse gases emitted due to the cold supply chain requirements and the disposal of medical waste. This tool will enable public health programs in low- to middle-income countries to design localized immunization supply systems that have reduced environmental and health impacts.
