Planning and Implementing a Logistics System Design Activity


Public health program managers in resource-limited settings often recognize the importance of a well-designed logistics system after experiencing symptoms of poor logistics system performance, such as stockouts, overstocks, and expiries. Based on experience designing logistics systems in many countries for many programs, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT recommends the use of a system design workshop involving local participants. This method has proven to be highly efficient, with a likelihood of yielding an appropriate system design that is country specific. This document serves as a guide to advisors and in-country partners to understand the process of designing an efficient, secure logistics system to improve product availability to clients and to move toward health commodity security.
