CCM Supply Chain Baseline Assessment - Oromia, Ethiopia 2010

Download this publicationThe Supply Chains for Community Case Management (SC4CCM) project conducted a baseline community-level supply chain assessment in Oromia region in Ethiopia in 2010. Both quantitative (LIAT) and qualitative (LSAT) methods were used. Results showed that only 32% of health posts had all CCM products in stock on day of visit. Intervention activities were developed following presentation of these results at a data validation workshop. This information can be useful for project managers and in-country stakeholders looking to implement other projects to improve supply chain practices in rural communities.

Supply Chains for Community Case Management (SC4CCM) is a learning project that identifies proven, simple, affordable solutions to address the unique supply chain challenges of community health workers (CHWs). Working with government community case management (CCM) initiatives in Ethiopia, Malawi, and Rwanda, over 12-24 months SC4CCM tested supply chain interventions to improve access to medicines so CHWs can treat common childhood illnesses like pneumonia, malaria, diarrhea, and malnutrition. SC4CCM is now working with Ministries of Health (MOH) and partners to scale up and institutionalize proven interventions. JSI/SC4CCM, 2010.
