inSupply Health is pleased to announce its partnership with the Ministry of Health’s Division of Health Products and Technologies (DHPT) for our project “Workforce Development in Public Health Supply Chains.” The project aims to professionalize the supply chain workforce, foster a culture of robust supply and demand planning, and enhance supply chain visibility. inSupply Health will support this project with our expertise in health supply chain management, while DHPT will provide leadership, guidance, and support to ensure its success.
Personnel turnover and commodity shortages are critical challenges facing public health supply chains in Kenya. By investing in the development of a skilled and motivated workforce, who are empowered to use data for operational and strategic decisions, we can build a more resilient health system that is better equipped to respond to the needs of the people it serves.
During a two-day workshop with the division, inSupply CEO Yasmin Chandani emphasized the importance of co-designing and co-creating, highlighting how inSupply engaged the DHPT team right from the proposal development process. Both teams recognize the importance of human resources in achieving universal health coverage and delivering essential health commodities.
Yasmin highlighted that inSupply Health is driven by innovation to strengthen supply chain systems and will explore more avenues for collaboration with other stakeholders to raise the standards of supply chain systems in the country. As the world faces unprecedented challenges in public health, we are committed to supporting the government’s efforts to ensure all Kenyans have access to health commodities and are confident that our partnership with the Ministry of Health will significantly contribute to these efforts.
