Evaluating the IMPACT Team Approach to Supply Chain Improvement
At the heart of the best functioning supply chains are people. inSupply has deployed its signature IMPACT Team approach to supply chain data use and quality improvement to strengthen family planning and immunization supply chains in Kenya. These interventions contribute to JSI’s overall body of work implementing the IMPACT Team approach in various countries. Over the past year JSI and inSupply have been conducting a retrospective analysis of the IMPACT Team approach to determine effectiveness and outcomes across countries. The preliminary findings indicate that IMPACT Teams improve performance, including reducing stockouts and improving supply reliability and reporting thereby helping to ensure family planning products reach women when and where they need them. Our Director, Yasmin Chandani, presented these findings at the recent International Conference on Family Planning.
