In order to improve health outcomes through supply chain management and a strong, sustainable supply chain workforce, it is essential to assess current situations. Therefore, the Initiative engaged in developing a strong evidence base on human resources for supply chain management, in collaboration with country governments.
This paper examines the situation in 2011 for healthcare supply chains in low- and/or middle- income countries (LMICs), how the public and private healthcare supply chains in these countries are organized, and how they perform using some key availability and affordability indicators.
As part of the effort to better understand the issues, constraints, and opportunities related to workforce excellence in public health supply chain management, the People that Deliver Initiative conducted an online survey of public health logisticians working in the developing world in 2011.
To better inform the June 2011 Global Positioning and Harmonization meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, the People that Deliver Initiative called upon the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT to adapt its “Human Resource Capacity in Public Health Supply Chain Management: Assessment Guide” for use by initiative partners. This assessment was implemented in eight countries in order to document the state of a country’s human resource (HR) capacity in supply chain management (SCM) and workforce excellence efforts in public health supply chains.
The following documents are more detailed surveys of countries’ human resource (HR) capacity in supply chain management (SCM) and workforce excellence efforts in public health supply chains.
