La pandémie actuelle du Covid-19 ébranle les systèmes de santé des pays à revenu faible et moyen (PRFM) et met leur personnel à risque. Le travail des personnels de santé clinique, qui traitent quotidiennement les patients dans les hôpitaux et les cliniques du monde entier, dépend des produits que le personnel de la chaîne d'approvisionnement en santé peut lui fournir. Sous-estimé à tort, ce dernier est fondamental pour assurer la disponibilité des produits et garantir la continuité des services de soins.

De nombreux webinaires focalisés sur la chaîne d'approvisionnement, y compris dans le domaine de la santé, ont été organisés par des organisations et institutions publiques et privées depuis l'épidémie. Cependant, la plupart de ces événements en ligne sont dispensés en anglais, ce qui limite l'accès à de précieuses ressources et informations pour la communauté francophone.

Rejoignez-nous pour un webinaire co-organisé par SAPICS et People that Deliver qui réunira des professionnels de la chaîne d'approvisionnement en santé des secteurs public et privé pour partager des idées et des expériences sur la façon dont la pandémie COVID-19 a affecté les opérations de leur chaîne d'approvisionnement. Les présentatrices mettront l’accent sur les besoins et bonnes pratiques du personnel de la chaîne d'approvisionnement de santé. Elles discuteront également de la façon dont leurs organisations soutiennent les travailleurs pour veiller à ce qu’ils soient protégés et soutenus, en prenant en considération le contexte des pays francophones en Afrique sub-saharienne.

Présentatrices confirmées:

Fernanda Debellian, Directeur régional, amérique centrale et du sud
Association pour la Gestion des Chaînes d’Approvisionnement (ASCM)

Dr. Sokhna Guaye, Chef de service Gestion des Stocks /Chaîne de froid
Pharmacie National d’Approvisionnement, Sénégal

Aline Mukerabirori, Senior Supply Chain Advisor
Management Sciences for Health, IMPACT Program
