The PtD competency compendium for health supply chain management, 2014

Focus Area
Evidence-based solutions

The People that Deliver Initiative’s mission is “to build global and national capacity to implement evidence based approaches to plan, finance, develop, support and retain the national workforces needed for the effective, efficient and sustainable management of health supply chains.” One of its strategic goals is to achieve “global recognition that strong supply chains are essential for positive health outcomes and require a competent, recognized and supported supply chain workforce with significant technical and managerial capacity.” To build this supply chain workforce, the required supply chain functions and tasks — and the accompanying knowledge, skills and abilities (competencies) — must be available at the right time and right place within the workforce.
