Topic #1: Insights from a hypothetically coordinated pediatric vaccine market: Making vaccines more affordable and profitable.
• In this presentation, we share the results of an OR-based study exploring how multiple factors affect affordability and profit for a hypothetically coordinated global vaccine market. Insights from this study suggest innovative ways of procuring pediatric vaccines that could increase their accessibility for low-income and lower-middle-income countries. The findings challenge market dynamics currently used in the global vaccine market.
Topic #2: Optimization of Pediatric Vaccines Distribution Network Configuration under Uncertainty.
• We create supply chain network design and distribution models to address the unique characteristics and challenges facing vaccine supply chains in Low and Middle Income countries.
