Vaccine Procurement and Supply for the Expanded Program of Immunization in Kazakhstan

In May 2022 UNITED NATIONS CHILDREN’S FUND (UNICEF) Kazakhstan published a report entitled: “Vaccine Procurement and Supply for the Expanded Program of Immunization in Kazakhstan: Gaps and Challenges for Action”, authored by Dr. George Gotsadze and Dr. David Sulaberidze, both representing Curatio International Foundation.

The overall purpose of this report is to reveal elements of the vaccine procurement and distribution process in Kazakhstan, and spotlight critical bottlenecks that negatively affect vaccine planning, procurement, supply, and distribution in the country. The report is intended to support national stakeholders in improving immunization service provision and avert potential outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases (VPD).

The report only covers vaccines for routine immunization for children as per the national vaccination schedule. Other vaccines used in the country are out of the scope of this review.

The report has been elaborated in the frame of the project: “Support National Stakeholders in Kazakhstan to map procurement process and identify gaps and barriers in the procurement of vaccines”, in partnership with the UNICEF KAZAKHSTAN country office.
