Vendor Managed Inventory: Is It Right for Your Supply Chain?


As governments and implementation partners help support health delivery and health systems in developing countries, they are beginning to appreciate the importance of supply chain management and supply chain capability. However, before they attempt to build a supply chain, planners must know what supply system designs and frameworks are available. One supply chain model that may hold promise for developing country health supply chains is vendor managed inventory (VMI). This brief illustrates how the public sector can benefit from a VMI approach. This brief was written by JSI's USAID | DELIVER PROJECT in 2012.
