Innovative Changes To Health Supply Chains Are Possible

Writing in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, Wendy Prosser, a program manager with VillageReach, reflects on several “innovative approaches to improving health supply chains” recently presented at the Global Health Supply Chain Summit in Ethiopia. “The next critical step will be to continue these conversations at the country level, where many of these approaches would need to be implemented to actually effect change,” she writes, concluding, “Change cannot be made, however, without the political will and leadership from the ministries of health. And this will only happen through sharing the evidence base, continuing the conversation while recognizing these changes are not easy but they are possible” (11/26).
