We all know that whenever supply chain challenges are discussed or assessed, inevitably human resources or lack of capacity comes up as one of the key bottlenecks. Nearly always the response is to include more training in whatever improvement plan is being developed.
The PtD-Namibia collaboration proposed a multifaceted, coordinated response that built on previous assessments and initiatives for the SCM workforce. PtD-Namibia sought to strengthen all five of the PtD human resources building blocks—that is, stakeholder engagement, optimized policies and plans, workforce development, improved retention and performance, and professionalized SCM workforce - through five integrated and interrelated activities over a period of 18 months.
The organization of an integrated Ministry of Health (MoH) pharmaceutical and commodity supply management system (known as SUGEMI, by the Spanish acronym) in Dominican Republic demanded an innovative training strategy for immediate implementation and long-term sustainability.
This report is the first of its kind to look at training evaluation within the public health supply chain. It emerged from an expressed need by the PtD Board to improve the evaluation of training and development activities with less reliance on training intervention outputs (i.e. the number of individuals trained), towards documenting the outcomes and impacts of training activities leading to improvement in health service delivery.
En s’appuyant sur l’expertise de ses spécialistes de la chaîne d’approvisionnement et des ressources humaines pour la santé, People that Deliver a proposé une série d’activités destinées à évaluer et à résoudre de manière globale les difficultés de la chaîne d’approvisionnement en matière de ressources humaines.
The landscape analysis of immunisation information system efficiency was conducted to better understand the work underway by all global stakeholders in this area. In order to meet global public health goals, including the Millennium Development Goals for improving maternal health; reducing child mortality; and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases, efficient public health supply chains are key, thus so is the role of the person tasked with managing this supply chain, the supply chain manager or logistician.
This survey is part of a series of the eight country surveys realized in the context of the People that Deliver Initiative. The joint methodology used for these surveys is based on the “assessment guide for capacity in public health supply chain management” elaborated and validated by Initiative members in 2011, in accordance with the USAID model.
