cStock is a supply chain strengthening approach that combines simple resupply procedures with mobile technology, user-centered dashboards, and Information Mobilized for Performance Analysis and Continuous Transformation (IMPACT) teams.

cStock is an important component of one of the ministry’s building blocks, which is the issue of commodity health products and technology. cStock incorporates a mechanism that allows you to efficiently manage commodities and has come at the right time to help us manage commodities.

cStock connects community health volunteers (CHVs) to facilities and promotes demand-based resupply, ensuring greater product availability in communities. Using cStock’s real-time supply chain data, CHV supervisors, facility staff, and sub-county and county managers can better manage inventory and demand planning. Adapted in partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Health’s Community Health Division Unit, cStock was built within DHIS2 and integrated with Kenya’s Health Information System to facilitate scale and sustainability.
