JSI Presents at the Health & Humanitarian Logistics Conference

May 30, 2017

The 9th Annual Health & Humanitarian Logistics Conference will be held in Copenhagen on June 7–9, 2017. The conference will provide an open forum to discuss the challenges and solutions in disaster preparedness and response, long-term development and humanitarian aid, and global health delivery.

JSI has been exploring ways to strengthen public health supply chains so that when disaster strikes, countries are better prepared, can recover rapidly, can save more lives, and can be more insulated from future emergency shocks. JSI also works extensively with health supply chains in development contexts. This year, our supply chain experts’ presentations will focus on:

  • increasing data visibility through better information systems
  • improving data use for effective supply chain operations
  • the importance of collaboration across sectors
  • leveraging private sector solutions for public health supply chain problems
  • introducing new products and new equipment into the supply chain.
