IMPROVING SUPPLY OF LIFE-SAVING MEDICINES AND VACCINES
The supply chain provides a reliable supply of products, ensure trust from patients in the system, and thus more people are likely to use health services.
Strengthening and maintaining the supply chain is an investment that pays off in four ways:
- It enhances health programs’ outcomes.
- It reduces losses due to overstock, waste, expiry, damage, pilferage, and inefficiency, and therefore minimize costs.
- It protects other major program investments.
- It maximizes the potential for cost recovery.
