The GOAP-PATH partnership project provided an opportunity to carryout situational analysis of the cold chain system in the State of Andhra Pradesh. Apart from identifying areas of work many quality issues like freezing of vaccine were brought to light, which lead to development of a comprehensive plan of action for total overhauling of cold chain system. Introduction of new technologies, training, infrastructure and software development has reformed the cold chain system. The EVSM (Effective vaccine stores management initiative) self assessment was done recently for the Central vaccine stores at Hyderabad and the results of this self assessment has raised the confidence of health personnel to aim for WHO, EVSM accreditation for central vaccine store at Hyderabad.
