Le Bon Endroit au Bon Moment:
Ce que nous avons appris du renforcement de la chaîne d'approvisionnement de six organisations confessionnelles d'approvisionnement en médicaments
24 août de 9h00 à 10h00 HE / 13h00 à 14h00 GMT
Getting medicines where they are needed, when they are needed, is crucial to a strong health system. Faith-based drug supply organizations play a critical role in medicine and supply delivery in many hard-to-reach areas and are key to efficient supply chains.

Join us for a webinar exploring lessons learned through a faith-based supply chain strengthening program in three countries: Cameroon, Ghana, and Nigeria. 

Six faith-based drug supply organizations (DSOs) participated in a supply chain strengthening activity supported by USAID’s MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership. These organizations underwent a supply chain assessment, virtual leadership development course, and proposal development process over the course of three years. Representatives from the DSOs will discuss the unique role of faith-based DSOs, lessons learned and improvements made, and challenges that still exist.

We will hear from  

  • Fidelis Nyaah, Director of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon Health Services
  • Dr. Paul Amo Kyeremeh, Recently Appointed as Health Director for the West-Central Africa Division of Seventh-Day Adventists (Appointment begins in September 2022) 
  • Jonathan Dogo, Managing Director/CEO of ECWA Central Pharmacy in Nigeria

The discussion will be moderated by Michael Fleming, Senior Expert, McKinsey and Company.
French interpretation will be available. Please share this notice with your Francophone colleagues.
L'acheminement des médicaments là où ils sont nécessaires, quand ils sont nécessaires, est crucial pour un système de santé solide. Les organisations confessionnelles d'approvisionnement en médicaments jouent un rôle essentiel dans la fourniture de médicaments et de fournitures dans de nombreuses zones difficiles d'accès et sont essentielles pour des chaînes d'approvisionnement efficaces.

Rejoignez-nous pour un webinaire explorant les leçons apprises grâce à un programme confessionnel de renforcement de la chaîne d'approvisionnement dans trois pays : le Cameroun, le Ghana et le Nigeria.

Six organisations confessionnelles d'approvisionnement en médicaments (DSO) ont participé à une activité de renforcement de la chaîne d'approvisionnement soutenue par MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership de l'USAID. Ces organisations ont fait l'objet d'une évaluation de la chaîne d'approvisionnement, d'un cours virtuel de développement du leadership et d'un processus d'élaboration de propositions sur une période de trois ans. Les représentants des DSO discuteront du rôle unique des DSO confessionnels, des leçons apprises et des améliorations apportées, et des défis qui existent encore.
