Internationally Awarded VACCi Pak | Strategic Healthcare Product System
OUTREACH VACCINE BIKE | PACK TRANSPORT
A culturally sensitive human-centered product service system designed to keep vaccines cold at 2-8 degrees as well as improve the transportation, administration and disposal of healthcare products in low resource settings.
Ineffective transportation and storage of vaccines and medical resources for healthcare clinics in inaccessible rural tropical terrains and villages.
VACCi Pak responds to a detailed cultural context study concerning child health in Timor-Leste. The product system is guided by the needs of the Timorese Rural Healthcare System (SISCa) and it’s focus is to assist in reducing child mortality, a key UN Millennium Development goal.
An interchangeable backpack and motorcycle pannier to be used by Timorese nurses, VACCi Pak is designed to ISO and WHO standards to prevent spoiling of life saving, increasingly expensive and bulky medical products. An in-built tablet monitors medical product temperatures during the journey. At location nurses record medical records and logistical needs using the tablet. Enclosing the cold chain chamber core is a locally manfactured bamboo composite material shaped to suit the physical needs of the nurses for their 24 hour journey into the dense terrain.
