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

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.

Hello TechNet-21 members,

The UAV for Payload Delivery Working Group (UPDWG) invite you to attend a special, one and a half hour webinar, jointly hosted by UPDWG and TechNet-21 on integrating drones into immunization supply chains.

Webinar: Integrating Drones into Immunization Supply Chains

When: November 7, 2019 | 10-11:30 AM EST

Description:

Resilient, high-performing immunization supply chains (iSCs) are the basis for strong primary health care systems and the foundation for reaching global immunization coverage and equity targets. Yet efficient and reliable transportation for immunization products still remains a challenge in many low and middle-income countries. New technologies, such as drones, have the potential to revolutionize traditional modes of transportation but how do you know if these technologies are the right fit for your context?

In this webinar, UPDWG and TechNet-21 will explore when integrating drones (or UAVs) into existing iSCs is feasible and how you can operationalize drones in existing immunization programs. UPDWG Members from UNICEF and VillageReach will share their experiences from Vanuatu and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in integrating drones transportation into the routine immunization supply chain. After the presentations, we will open the floor for a panel discussion with VillageReach DRC and former UNICEF Vanuatu staff.

Hosts:
Olivier Defawe - UPDWG
Daniel Brigden - TechNet-21, The Technical Network for Strengthening Immunization Services

Case Study Presenters:
Jaime Archundia - UAS Global Lead, UNICEF
Luciana Maxim - Sr. Manager, Research Evidence and Learning, VillageReach

Discussion Panelists:
Ridwan Gustiana - Health Specialist, Immunization UNICEF (formerly UNICEF Vanuatu)
Archimede Makaya - Equateur Provincial Coordinator, VillageReach DRC
Dieudonne Nsekela - Program Officer, New Technologies, VillageReach DRC
Christian Vazquez - Civil Engineer, Transportation Engineering (formerly UNICEF Vanuatu)

Registration: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/c638a89ac5516f0d8c34be5db4a05ad8
