Thinking of coming to Bangkok? Register and submit an abstract through the new website

Prospective participants are invited to register and submit their abstracts for the PtD Global Indaba through the new PtD Global Indaba website.

The Global Indaba is the only global conference that focuses on human resources for health supply chain management.

The second edition of the PtD Global Indaba will take place at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers in Bangkok, Thailand, between 6 and 8 March 2024. On Friday 8 March a half day will be focused on and organised by the International Association of Public Health Logisticians (IAPHL).

The conference will draw on discussions and revelations from the SAPICS conference and GHSC summit to unveil human resources for supply chain management solutions to transform health supply chains.

Abstract submission 

We are now receiving abstract submissions that fall within one of two categories:

1)      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?

2)      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.

PtD is working with its partners the International Association of Public Health Logisticians (IAPHL), Management Sciences for Health (MSH), Pharmaceutical Systems Africa and Upavon Management as well as local partner Mahidol University (Center for International Healthcare Logistics and Supply Chain) to make the PtD Global Indaba an even more interactive and engaging conference than the hugely successful first edition, which was held in Zambia last October.
