The supply chain challenges of vaccinating 8bn people: Part 1 - a chat with Alina Gross
Nov 27, 2020 Season 1 Episode 88
Tom Raftery / Alina Gross

This is the first of a two part podcast series on the challenges of vaccinating everyone against Covid-19.

Background - in August a colleague of mine Alina Gross (@gross_alinaa on Twitter) penned an excellent in-depth piece of Forbes titled The Next Supply Chain Challenge: How To Vaccinate The World.

I was reminded of that recently when Pfizer and BioNTech announced the successful results of their vaccine trials.

A couple of days later I was made aware that SAP announced its Vaccine Collaboration Hub (VCH) to address many of the challenges highlighted in Alina's article.

I reached out to Alina, and members of the VCH team to see if they'd come on the podcast to discuss this unique supply chain challenge, and they agreed, so here we are. In this episode Alina is discussing with me some of the challenges. On Monday next Chris Roediger will chat with me about the Vaccine Collaboration Hub.

This was a really interesting episode of the podcast. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I learned loads, and I hope you do too.

If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to).
