PKD is an initiative of the Progressive Inclusive Design office headed by designer Kazuo Kawasaki and supported by the Medical Centre for Translational Research at Osaka University Hospital. Currently those involved with PKD are developing two vaccine packaging systems, in response to difficulties encountered with the administration of vaccines.

All steps in the vaccination process have been considered, from initial production costs to transport and portability, safety, security and disposability.

The vaccine pack concepts include outer and inner boxes that carry bulk vaccines, as well as a carry case with a peltiert function that can be safely parachuted into remote areas.

It is hoped that universities, governments and private companies from around the world will partner with the project.
