Using three powerful analytical tools, a network optimization exercise concluded that the Ethiopian Pharmaceuticals Supply Agency’s (EPSA) existing network of 19 branch warehouses is significantly more than is needed to provide enough coverage to most health facilities. Recognizing an over-investment in warehousing, EPSA chose to reduce the number of branches to 10 and to make changes to its delivery services to reach all remote health facilities.
