Cornell Institute for Disease & Disaster Preparedness Vaccine Distribution Model

Thank you for your interest in the CIDDP Vaccine Distribution Model.  

Protecting the global community from the COVID-19 pandemic is not ‘rocket science’, it is much harder than that. Timely delivering the COVID-19 vaccine to the global population will require a strategic all-of-government approach, and an unprecedented all-of-society approach that spans government and the private sector, crossing entrenched economic divisions between the Global North and South, as well as burgeoning anti-scientific movements that threaten to scuttle dramatic advances before they can even be brought to market. Basic and applied biological science has given the world the means to tame this pandemic. To succeed now, a new set of sciences—of supply chain engineering, behavioral psychology and information management, to name only the most prominent—must be given equal representation.
