Building sustainable supply chain management
Extended shelf-life: building sustainable supply chain management
Drugs and commodities are a key part of a functioning health system. Inefficient supply chains have a direct effect on the patients, thus decreasing confidence in the system. Better integration and improved efficiency in the Supply Chain Management (SCM) can create real life-saving change. Over the years, different partners have introduced new approaches to the supply chain management of drugs and commodities but as funding comes to an end and without a sustainable approach for skills and knowledge transfer to state staff, the states have typically fallen back to previous low stock levels. To ensure that Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (RMNCH) drugs and commodities are readily available at critical service delivery points even after the intervention, MNCH2 has been supporting human capacity and physical improvements to institutionalise sustainability.
