Abstract submission
Click here to submit your abstract


We are looking for abstracts that fit in to one of two categories:


Evidence-based solutions with actual results

This is for abstracts that highlight programmatic results. We’d like to know about these results and ask, what’s next?


Future-focused solutions to transform health supply chains

Perhaps you’d like to draw attention to a new approach that hasn’t yet had the chance to yield results. We’d like to know why this is a solution that will transform supply chains and the potential results.


Whichever category your abstract fits into, it should fulfil the following criteria:


It must align with the theme of the Global Indaba; it should focus on the supply chain workforce and offer a solution to transform health supply chains. Tell us what your solution is.


The highlighted approach should be sustainable (eg. a programme that could yield results for years to come) and transferable to other geographical settings. Tell us what makes your solution sustainable.


The focus of the abstract should fall within one or more of the four pathways of PtD’s Theory of change: Staffing, skills, motivation or working conditions.


The PtD coalition particularly encourages the submission of abstracts that focus on health supply chain management in the following areas:


  • Professionalisation
  • Leadership and change management
  • Motivation
  • Working conditions
  • Public-private collaborations
  • Youth engagement
  • Digitalisation
  • Gender
  • Disability
  • Last mile
