About us

Our Story:

The Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Network (VPPN) is a network of senior-level practitioners and technical experts from middle-income countries who exchange knowledge and learn from each other’s experiences online and at face-to-face events. The network was formed following the first Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Exchange Forum (VPPEF) in 2015, hosted by UNICEF Supply Division in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Our Purpose:

The purpose of the VPPN is to improve vaccine procurement outcomes for children's health in middle-income countries. 

Our Values:

Committed to Children: We are a dedicated network, committed to improving child health outcomes.

Knowledge Sharing: We engage in an open exchange of opinions, observations and questions that benefit our fellow professionals facing similar challenges.

Global: We are a global community committed to regular interaction with our fellow members to support the vital work begun during the VPPEF 2015. 

Expertise: We are a network of senior level government officials and technical experts, focused on sharing our knowledge for the benefit of our fellow members.

Membership:

Membership is by invitation only. The limited membership is designed to encourage an open exchange amongst those procurement practitioners buying vaccines on behalf of their respective countries.
