Dear Technet Members,

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project invites you to the second in a series of SCM Workforce Development webinars, ‘HR for SCM – Improving HR Performance through applying the PtD Theory of Change.'

Like all chains, supply chains are no stronger than their weakest link. In many low and middle-income countries, the supply chain workforce often do not have the technical and managerial skills to perform optimally, the empowerment to affect supply decisions, or the human resources policies needed for effective management. The People that Deliver (PtD) Theory of Change for SCM was developed to describe the pathways that must be present for optimal workforce performance and the interventions required to make this happen.

Thursday the 21st March, 8am to 9am EST.

At the conclusion of this session participants should be able to:

* Explain why there is a need to systematically improve HR capacity and systems to improve HR performance in supply chain teams
* Use the People that Deliver (PtD) Theory of Change for SCM https://peoplethatdeliver.org/ptd/resources/human-resources-supply-chain-management-theory-change (HR4SCM ToC) to understand the four essential pathways to optimize workforce performance in SCM and the actions required to strengthen these pathways
The webinar will be facilitated by Dr Andrew N Brown (GHSC-PSM) and Bridget J McHenry (USAID).

Andrew is the GHSC-PSM Workforce Development Specialist. He has more than 20 years of experience in pharmaceutical health systems with a specialized focus on human resources development in the health supply chain context of low and middle-income countries. He has extensive experience working with international and national stakeholders to strengthen human resource management systems to effectively develop, recruit, retain, and support the health workforce for increased access to quality health services. https://www.linkedin.com/in/anbrownhss/

Bridget is the Senior Organizational Development Advisor for Commodity Security & Logistics at USAID with USAID’s Global Health Bureau in the Office of Population and Reproductive Health. She holds a Master of Public Health degree from George Washington University and is an APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional. In her current role as the Organizational Development Advisor, she is working on organizational development and capacity building issues related to HRH for SCM for health commodities. She is a technical advisor to the work of
GHSC-PSM and supports USAID's engagement in PtD and IAPHL.

Background
Under the UN initiative for Universal Healthcare Coverage, a healthcare system can serve at its best only with access to right medicines and health products. As per WHO access to right medicines can be best ensured by proper selection and use of medicines, affordable prices for quality medicines and products, sustainable financing and reliable health system. Pharmaceuticals (medicinal products, vaccines, contraceptives, diagnostics, and medical supplies) constitute second highest item of expenditure after the manpower in any given health facility/hospital. Irrational use of medicines is prevalent at all levels of health care leading to wastage of scarce resources as well as reduced medication safety in patients. Emergence of antimicrobial resistance continues to pose a global problem in handling the management of infections. Counterfeit and substandard medicines also create an impediment in access to quality medicines. Medication and pharmaceutical management in hospitals can be one of the most cost-effective measures for appropriate use of scarce health care resources. Medication safety in patients can be best ensured if rational and appropriate uses of medicines are practiced. Medication management through a functional Drug and Therapeutics Committee (DTC) which is also referred to as Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee (PTC) can provide an effective structure and tool to bring together all the relevant people to work jointly for promoting more efficient and rational use of medicines. For accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare (NABH) in India and by many accreditation boards in other countries, requirement of a functional DTC/PTC is mandatory.

Objectives
The program will provide the participants with the tools and techniques for Medication and Quality management in healthcare institutions. They will be exposed to real life situation to help them to find the practical solutions and implement them in their own settings.

The specific objectives of the program are:
• To enable participants, understand and comprehend the concepts and principles of pharmaceutical management and interventions to promote rational use of medicines in hospitals
• To facilitate appreciation and significance of Drug and Therapeutics Committees (DTCs) towards pharmaceutical management in hospitals with its goals, role, structure, and functions.
• To enable participants, understand issues related to quality & safety of medicines and supply chain management
• To understand antimicrobial resistance, approaches for containment and antibiotic policy
• To expose the participants to practical approaches in developing effective strategies for change.

Course Content
The course consists of discussion on following areas:
• Problem of irrational use of medicines
• Evidence based medicine
• Tools, interventions and strategies to improve medicines use
• Concepts of Formulary and Standard Treatment Guidelines, and Drugs & Therapeutics Committees, its
structure, and functions
• Formulary management
• Quality assurance of medicines
• Basic cost-effectiveness evaluation
• Field visit to hospital and hands on practice for Pharmaceutical management in Hospital
• Patient Medicines safety and Pharmacovigilance
• Medication errors
• Prescription audit
• Monitoring medicines use
• Antimicrobial resistance approaches for containment and antibiotic policy
• Pharmaceutical supply system including procurement and distribution
• Patient education
Participants
The program is meant for hospital managers, doctors, clinical pharmacologists, pharmacists and other public health professionals/officials from federal/central and state Ministries/ Departments of Medical & Health, government hospitals, corporate and other private hospitals interested in promoting rational use of medicines in the hospital through Drug and Therapeutics Committees (DTCs). Accredited hospitals having DTCs/PTCs may empower members to expand their knowledge and hospitals in process of constituting DTCs/PTCs can also nominate their professionals.

Training Approach
The program will use a mix of lecture by resource persons to introduce the lead concept and encourage active interaction by the participants through classroom discussions, group work and presentations. The course will be conducted in English.

New Study Webinar: European Immunization Legislation

  1.   14th Feb, 2019
In light of recent outbreaks of measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases in Europe, the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin), in partnership with the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health ...
In light of recent outbreaks of measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases in Europe, the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin), in partnership with the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown Law, conducted a review of immunization legislation in the region in 2018. The resulting report, Legislative Approaches to Immunization Across the European Region, examines how countries have approached immunization legislation, ranging from voluntary or recommended (the state asks that individuals seek out immunization) to mandatory (the state requires that individuals are immunized).

This study is the first and only systematic review of immunization legislation that includes all 53 countries in the region and provides a comprehensive overview that can be used by countries as a point of reference when evaluating legislative frameworks for immunization. This is a first step down an important path not only to begin to track changes in legislation for immunization, but also to see what impact they may have. The review reflects previous studies in that there is not “best approach” to immunization coverage, but rather encourages future study for correlation, and enforces that various factors – social, political, historical and economical – must be considered carefully by policy makers prior to implementing legislation.

In this webinar, we will walk through the report’s findings with Dr. Bruce Gellin, president of Global Immunization at the Sabin Vaccine Institute, and Katie Gottschalk, executive director of the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown Law.

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A Session with our research team. A recording of the webinar will also be available after its conclusion.

Workshop Title:
Using a Theory of Change and whole of SCM labor market approach to catalyze country investments to improve HR for SCM: A practical toolkit

Background:
The provision of quality health commodities is paramount, if ‘Good Health and Well Being’ (SDG3) is to be obtained for all. Key to reaching this reality is the development of a competent and supported workforce to manage health supply chain systems, particularly in low and middle-income countries. This session will explore how whole of labor market approaches and Theory of Change methodology can help us better understand the health SCM HR environment to prioritize future HR investments in the sector. Further, the session will explore a more simplified approach for countries to assess the status of their own HR systems and plan to improve them.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of this session participants will:
· Define the existing HR for SCM issues facing health supply chains
· Understand the role of whole of labor market approaches and Theory of Change to better understand HR issues within the health SCM sector
· Consider how a detailed understanding of the current HR situation is critical to determine priority interventions and also easy to do
· Apply approaches and lessons learnt to their local country context.

More information will be sent out closer to the workshop, including a detailed agenda and location. This event is free of charge and lunch will be provided.

Population size estimates and mapping populations are important to adequately respond to health issues in high-risk​ groups. They are needed for advocacy, to develop programs, and to plan, implement and monitor interventions. This information also helps provide an understanding of the social determinants of health and identify needed revisions in policies and laws. The workshop will provide intensive training in the concepts of mapping and size evaluation. Participants should leave the workshop with:

- Knowledge of methods for collecting size estimation data and an understanding of approaches most appropriate for their respective settings;
- Working understanding of the uses of population size estimates for policy and programming;
- Skills needed for analyzing and reconciling size estimation data;
- Understanding of approaches to estimating program coverage
- A step-by-step plan for coming up with national level size estimates for any of several high-risk groups

This workshop is designed to build the capacity of professionals to use population information, produce local and national estimates, understand the scope of the problem, set targets, estimate resources needed and plan appropriate interventions. The key topics being covered are:

- The concept of Population Size Estimations
- Importance of size estimation in programme planning
- Methods of Population Size Estimation
- Challenges in Mapping and Size Estimation
- Measuring Coverage of Interventions
- Use of Data for Estimation

Refrigerated vehicles are crucial in the delivery of life-saving vaccines. Programmes that depend on one or a small number of refrigerated vehicles may be seriously impeded if a vehicle breaks down or is unable to maintain the temperature range that is required for the safe storage of vaccines.

On behalf of the WHO Performance, Quality and Safety (PQS) Secretariat, we are delighted to invite your response to our survey on the use of refrigerated vehicles in immunization programmes.

The purpose of this survey is to gather information on the performance of refrigerated vehicles that are at least three years old. This information will be used to help PQS develop standards for refrigerated vehicles that meet the needs of immunization programmes. The information you provide will be extremely valuable to WHO PQS and the WHO Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI).

The survey can be accessed by clicking on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PQSrefrigeratedvehicle. The survey will remain open until October 31, 2018.

Please complete this survey for each vehicle that has been in regular use for more than three years for the purpose of carrying vaccines or other temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals. Please provide any available photographs where prompted in specific survey questions, by uploading photos directly to this platform.

Should you require further information on the survey, please contact the PQS Secretariat at mallinsp@who.int.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, depending on the extent of your free-text answers.

The Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC - https://immunizationeconomics.org/ican-idcc ) is the most comprehensive, current, and standardized global evidence on the cost of delivering vaccines in low- and middle-income countries. It features over 400 unit costs that can be used by national and international immunization stakeholders for budgeting, planning and policy-making purposes.

Want to learn more about how to use the IDCC and have an opportunity to ask your questions? Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, October 30 at 9am EST. Email ICAN@ThinkWell.global for more information and to register. You can also submit any questions you might have about the IDCC, so they can be taken into consideration as we develop the webinar content.

The IDCC was developed under the Immunization Costing Action Network (ICAN) project. Led by ThinkWell and John Snow, Inc. (JSI), the ICAN is a project focused on increasing the visibility, availability, understanding, and use of data on the cost of delivering vaccines. ICAN aims to build country capacity around the generation and use of cost evidence for sustainable and predictable financing for immunization.

Hope to "see" you there!
