Myanmar Supply Chain Quality Improvement Teams Pilot Results

Download this publicationOver the past two years, the Ministry of Health (MOH) of Myanmar, with support from (JSI) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), has designed and implemented the reproductive health commodity logistics system (RHC-LS) in 12 townships in four states/regions in Myanmar.

The results of the pilot evaluation showed that even though logistics data from health facility reports is being collected in an automated electronic logistics management information system (eLMIS) called Logistimo, it was only used on a very limited basis to influence staffs’ logistics decisions.

With support from the UN Commission on Life Saving Commodities and the Supply Chain Technical Reference Team, the MOH and JSI implemented quality improvement teams (QITs) to improve the use of data for supply chain decision making. This enhances the supply chain’s performance and ability to deliver products to the client level. JSI, 2016
