inSupply Health Launches in Kenya
“When we started this journey more than three years ago we were driven by the belief that no one should lack access to health products that they need or want and that strong supply chains were a really critical part of that solution. We saw a gap in the market for affordable, locally grown and owned quality supply chain solutions” Yasmin Chandani, inSupply Health, CEO
inSupply Health is dedicated to expanding health coverage and saving lives in East Africa through locally grown and owned solutions to health supply chain challenges. June 26 marked the official launch of inSupply Health in Kenya where we were joined by partners and fellow health supply chain enthusiasts for an evening of learning and hands-on experimentation with inSuppy’s supply chain technical approaches and solutions.
Attendees began their journey at the “problem master” table where they selected problems they commonly face in their health or supply chain projects. From there, people took their problems around to our solution tables to learn how our five core supply chain service offerings – health gaming, capacity building, cStock, IMPACT Teams, and unpiloted aerial vehicles (UAVs) – can address common supply chain challenges. Attendees competed against each other on the Health Games platform, tested out reporting and resupply requesting through the cStock app, and learned about using data for problem-solving and action planning through IMPACT Teams and our indicator tracking tool dashboard.
“It was interactive with lots of learning,” stated one participant. “I did not even feel like it came to an end.” Another attendee declared “this is great! I have never seen this model of launch before. we had an opportunity to know more about the organization, what [inSupply Health] does and ask questions at a personal level.”
Chandani, concluded the evening by affirming that “our understanding of the local context and challenges allow us to adapt and customize solutions to meet the evolving needs of our clients while ensuring that the approach and solution are context-appropriate.” Learn more about how inSupply is transforming supply chains in East Africa by visiting our website and signup for our newsletter to get updates on our latest work.
