Community Case Management Supply Chain Baseline Assessment Rwanda 2010

Download this publicationThis PowerPoint presentation examines issues related to community case management supply chains in Rwanda.

In 2010, the Supply Chains for Community Case Management (SC4CCM) project partnered with the Rwanda Ministry of Health (MOH) Community Health Desk to conduct a baseline assessment of the supply chain. They then developed effective approaches to address the identified gaps in the resupply process for the over 30,000 CHWs who manage lifesaving medicines and other health products in the country. Issues identified include low product availability, no standard procedures for resupplying CHWs, and supply chain transportation challenges.

This presentation highlights SC4CCM's approach and methodology as well as the results of the baseline assessment conducted.

Supply Chains for Community Case Management (SC4CCM) is a learning project that classifies proven, simple, affordable solution 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 established 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.
