​IAPHL – PtD discussion on HR in SCM, 2015

Focus Area

Without access to and appropriate use of quality medicines and health commodities, health systems lose their ability to meet the treatment and prevention needs of the patients and clients they serve. The health supply chain workforce is crucial if the health-related Millennium Development Goals are to be attained and health equity achieved. The People that Deliver (PtD) Initiative brings together a range of global stakeholders with expertise in supply chain management to focus on this human resources (HR) issue. Further, the International Association of Public Health Logisticians (IAPHL) is dedicated to improving public health supply chain management (SCM) and commodity security by promoting the professional development of public health logisticians, and provides a mechanism to discuss HR for SCM issues through online discussion with more than 2000 members.
