Tanzania: TB and Leprosy Logistics System Assessment

Download this publicationIn 1977, the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) of Tanzania created the National TB and Leprosy Program (NTLP) to provide services, diagnosis, and treatment for TB and leprosy. To achieve its objectives, the NTLP collaborates with various international and local partners. In July 2011, the Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) project, on behalf of the NTLP, conducted a comprehensive assessment of the current TB and leprosy (TBL) supply chain.

Specifically, the assessment focused on assessing the overall functioning of the TBL supply chain system, including the availability of TB and leprosy drugs and key logistics information, identifying strengths and weaknesses to formulate recommendations to strengthen the TBL supply chain system, and providing baseline information to monitor progress and make any necessary changes. This assessment was conducted using the Logistics Indicator Assessment Tool (LIAT) and the Logistics System Assessment Tool (LSAT), as well as a Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping tool. This report describes the results of the assessment. JSI/SCMS, 2011.
