The Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Network (VPPN)

The Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Network (VPPN) is a virtual community of practice targeting major national stakeholders to the vaccine procurement process in Middle Income Countries (MICs) that are self-procuring or plan to move to self-procurement. In an attempt to build MICs’ vaccine procurement capacity, the network supports the following objectives:

  • Provide a solution that will allow discussions on concrete vaccine procurement strategies to further mature online along countries’ path towards self-procurement.
  • Facilitate exchange among countries, ensuring people involvement.
  • Multichannel information sharing such as webinar, regional meeting involving partners and/or industry discussing specific issues.
  • Capture and diffuse existing knowledge and information – to gather and facilitate the access to information.
  • Promote collaborative processes – to help practitioners identify resources and organize around purposeful actions that deliver tangible results.
