A Program Manager's Guide
March 13, 2017
As in-country public health logistics systems become more integrated and sophisticated, many countries are looking to automate their logistics management information systems (LMIS) to improve the quantity, quality, and timeliness of logistics data throughout the country. These guidelines were written for ministry of health managers, program managers, donors, and management information system (MIS) program ofﬁcers as a reference when considering starting an LMIS automation project, planning for one, and executing that plan. Organized around the phases of a software development project, these guidelines provide practical information and resources to ensure proper program management of a complex technology planning process.
