Transitioning Ownership of Electronic LMIS in Zambia

In support of the journey to self-reliance, JSI’s AIDSFree project in Zambia is working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to fully transition leadership and ownership of the electronic logistics management information system (eLMIS) to the MOH by 2022. Together we have developed a sustainability plan outlining key roles and responsibilities in governance, financing, and capacity for optimal operation of the eLMIS by the MOH. To support financial sustainability and management, we developed a Total Cost of Ownership tool to help the MOH and stakeholders understand current and future eLMIS management, deployment and maintenance costs, and funding commitments and gaps to inform resource mobilization efforts for the eLMIS.

#ICFP2018 Special Edition: Strong Reproductive Health Supply Chains Save Lives

Project Updates

Expanding choice through new product introduction

New and improved contraceptive technologies hold tremendous potential to expand family planning options and choice for women and men around the world. JSI has extensive experience introducing new and next generation family planning products into existing markets. We work at the global, country and community levels  to monitor procurement trends and country demand and support countries in introducing new products by addressing a range of issues from policy to systems. For more info: Family Planning Access Program and the Subcutaneous DMPA Access Collaborative project.

Scaling up IMPACT teams to improve data use and supply reliability

At the heart of the best functioning supply chains are people. Since 2010, JSI has partnered with 10 countries to empower staff to analyze, use, and transform data to improve the performance of their health supply chains through IMPACT Teams. Preliminary results from a retrospective analysis show that IMPACT Teams improve performance, including reducing stockouts and improving supply reliability and reporting thereby helping to ensure family planning products reach women when and where they need them.

When Crises Hit: Supply Chains Matter 

Improving the availability of reproductive health products in humanitarian settings

JSI is working with the United Nations Population Fund to ensure the reproductive health (RH) rights of women and girls in humanitarian settings. We developed a global forecasting tool for emergency RH kits, which includes a dashboard to increase data visibility and helps advocate for increased investments in products and supply chains. We are also supporting quantification of emergency RH kits in Bangladesh (Cox Bazar, home to the Rohingya refugees), Jordan, Kenya, and Sierra Leone, and the transition from emergency kits to more sustainable and cost-effective approaches.

New inventory management system improves service delivery for refugees

At the request of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Ethiopian Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs, JSI developed and deployed an automated inventory management system to 750 public-sector health centers and hospitals. The system improves medicine management, stock visibility, and ultimately service delivery for nearly 900,000 refugees living in 24 camps.​ Learn more

Building supply chain capacity helps mitigate risk in emergency settings 

With the USAID Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance support, JSI is improving the capacity of donor and nongovernmental agency staff to manage health commodity supply chains in humanitarian crises. Building capacity can lower risk of loss and waste, as well as improve health commodity availability for people affected by emergencies.

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) have significant potential to improve the availability of health products in hard-to-reach locations. As more low- and middle-income countries explore opportunities to improve their public health supply chains and diagnostics networks, knowing how best to use UAS to improve reach in the last mile is critical.In this new white paper, JSI and our partners LLamasoft, Inc. and the Nichols Group provide objective guidance for countries and public health stakeholders on how to make informed decisions about which health products to prioritize for cost-effective delivery using UAS. 

Our analysis took into account geography, UAS characteristics, and the characteristics of products and their demand patterns. The paper focuses on examining the cost-effectiveness of delivering:

items for safe blood transfusion long-tail products (small quantity, unpredictable demand products) program and essential medicines vaccines diagnostic specimens

Learn about other ways JSI is using technology to improve public health supply chains.
