Please join leading experts in supply chain management for a webinar featuring public health supply chains in low- and middle-income countries.
International donors have invested significant funds in the last few decades to ensure the uninterrupted delivery and improved availability of live-saving global health commodities in low- and middle-income countries. These efforts have led to substantial improvement in the performance of public health supply chains, reduced stock-out rates of key health commodities, and sustained host country commitment to providing health commodities. However, the reliance of countries on international donors and donors’ historical focus on working mainly with government-led operators at the country level may have inadvertently resulted in an underutilization of local private sector supply chain operators. Achieving a balance between public and private sector operators is critical to long-term sustainability and the transition of governments from supply chain operators to stewards.
The speakers will discuss the current and future state of supply chain stewardship, as well as gaps that must be addressed to re-align public and private sector supply chain activities within donor assistance programs, focusing on the planning, financing, and sourcing of life-saving commodities.
