Description

Global health supply chains are growing in complexity as they respond to changing patterns of commodity flows and demands for more accurate information in an increasingly digitized world. Information systems, which form the backbone of today’s supply chains, must mature in order to manage the growing complexity. As physical commodities move through supply chains, information systems enable the flow of commodity data, ensuring that medicines move from manufacturer to national warehouses to health facilities and, finally, to end users. Weak information systems can hinder effective response to supply chain exceptions, such as stockouts and expiries, as well as efficient procurement and distribution of health commodities.
