Abstract: The initial goal of any health care system is not only to address the medical needs of individuals and populations but also involves other factors affecting the general well-being of individuals and societies. The three main goals of a health care system, as stipulated by the World Health Organization (WHO) are: health improvement, responsiveness
and fairness in financial contribution. Equally, in an end-to-end vaccine supply chain design context, these goals constitute the underlying ground for the multi-criteria evaluation of the way a vaccine supply chain is designed: the Access to Medicines (ATM) dimension needs to co-exist with the economic and technological ambitions. This boils
down to the observation that a good supply chain design will make the best feasible combination of these multi-criteria evaluation metrics in order to reach as much as possible the aspirations of all stakeholders involved. We expose a data-driven supply chain design approach in five steps: (1) Stakeholder analysis and system definition, (2) Key performance indicators derivation and design requirements, (3) System design/modelling and scenario generation, (4) Scenario ranking and (5) Final scenario implementation.
