PRODUCTION AND EXPERIMENTATION OF ADAPTED REFRIGERATOR FOR VACCINES STORAGE

Objective


For several years, the World Health Organisation has been most interested in the photovoltaic technique for vaccine conservation in developing countries. Studies on the photovoltaic refrigerators available have shown that it would be interesting to develop a very small size apparatus, which would be portable and offer low electricity consumption. This programme has succeeded in the completion of a storage container prototype which is likely to be industrially manufactured. The design analysis of this prototype, as well as qualification tests in a climatic chamber, has verified the characteristics of this refrigerator and its adaptation to use within the framework of vaccine conservation.
