Duties

Cold Chain Equipment
Most vaccines must be stored and transported at refrigerated temperatures of two to eight degrees Celsius to maintain their potency. This network of storage and transport points is known as the “cold chain”, and is the backbone of immunization programs around the world.

This role falls within the global Cold Chain Logistics (CCL) team, which works with governments to remove cold- and supply-chain issues as a barrier to improved coverage.

2. Support CHAI's ability to deliver high-quality and impactful work across diverse operating contexts and content areas
3. Inform global practices and policies related to vaccines cold chain
4. Support program and grant management (with a focus on vaccines cold chain work) in collaboration with program, regional and country leadership
