ENABLING PUBLIC HEALTH SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSFORMATION THROUGH RESEARCH
ARC HAS PUT TOGETHER A RESEARCH INITIATIVE ON PUBLIC HEALTH SUPPLY CHAINS THAT AIMS TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THE PUBLIC SECTOR WHEN DEVELOPING HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAINS POLICIES.
Across Africa, several key questions are emerging around supply chains for healthcare. There is growing demand from around the globe for engagement with local and regional institutions in Africa to address these questions, especially with many countries preparing to implement Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in line with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Rehabilitation 2030: A Call for Action.
ARC’s research initiative on public health supply chains aims to provide evidence to support the public sector when developing policies. Research outputs are relevant to local ministries of health and add to the skilled workforce pipeline for both the public and private sectors. They are developed through a consultative process that involves stakeholders and a research advisory panel comprising professors from INSEAD, HEC Paris, Liverpool John Moores University, University of Cape Town, UNISA and KU Leuven University.
