After obtaining his doctorate in medicine from the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of Rabat, Khalid Ait Taleb occupied a number of roles, including as Professor of Higher Education at the Faculty of Medicine of Fez, Head of the Department of Visceral Surgery at the Hassan II University Hospital Center in Fez, Director of the Hassan II Fez University Hospital Center, and Member of the Committee of Experts at the Ministry of Health.

What role has Aba Technology played in the fight against the pandemic and what has its contribution been to the vaccination campaign?

Getting vaccines is part of the job, but without storage capacity and transport systems, it is impossible to get them to communities. Aware of the critical role that the cold chain plays in a vaccination campaign, the Ministry of Health, since the start of vaccination efforts in Morocco, has been working closely with its key partners, such as Aba Technology, to set up, expand, and strengthen the country's cold chain capacity. These efforts include the installation of temperature sensors in cold rooms, refrigerators and freezers in vaccine storage spaces at central, provincial, and local levels, and also in refrigerated containers for transport, as well as in isotherm cases to ensure the safe flow of vaccines during the final stages of movement to their destination. ABA Technology also provides technical and logistical support at all levels to ensure that the management of the cold chain is effective. Through our close collaboration, ABA Technology has shown great mastery of the profession and unparalleled efficiency, and has won our faith to entrust it with the deployment strategy for the second phase of the national vaccination campaign.
