Godrej Appliances will be commissioning vaccine refrigerators and deep freezers under the pan India programme by Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.
It has commissioned 11,856 units of vaccine refrigerators and deep freezers under the Universal Immunisation Programme of the government in states across India over the next six months.
Godrej said these advanced medical equipment will be delivered at various state depots across the country in 22 locations and will be commissioned at district hospitals, government hospitals and health centers strengthening the cold chain for the massive immunization programme run by the Indian government.
Backed by Sure Chill Technology, Godrej medical refrigerators help maintain the optimum temperature range of 2 to 8 °C – a must for vaccine preservation and blood storage.
This refrigerator maintains its temperature even in case of power outages for as long as 8-12 days in ambient temperatures of 43˚C. In regions without electric supply, the equipment can be teamed with solar power to deliver the same results.
“We are proud to be a part of one of the largest immunization programs by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare. Immunization has long been the most effective way to fight and eradicate diseases,” said Kamal Nandi, Business Head and Executive Vice President, Godrej Appliances.
Nandi said Godrej medical refrigerators are equipped to deliver a precision cooling of 4°C at all times despite power cuts and is at par with international quality standards, with performance that outclasses most other ILRs.
Nandi said Godrej is proud to partner the Indian government by strengthening the healthcare cold chain in this large-scale endeavour which protects the health of Indian citizens, safeguards the country’s current and future generations and helps build a robust nation and economy.
