Maximizing Global Health Supply Chain Impact:

Data and Analytics, Entrepreneurship and Accessibility

The 12th Global Health Supply Chain Summit (GHSCS) will be held over three days, November 20-22, 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The summit will focus on maximizing global health supply chain impact: data and analytics, entrepreneurship and accessibility. Participants will hear about case studies, strategies, and frameworks from practitioners and academics in the above themes of this year’s summit. As in the previous conferences, the summit will assemble an impressive group of practitioners and experts from the global health supply chain field including academics, country planners, NGOs, logistics practitioners, pharmaceutical industry, and donor representatives.   We encourage both English and French speaking presenters and participants.  We will provide French-English and English-French simultaneous translation during the conference. The conference schedule includes:

  • Nov 20-21, 2019:
    • Keynotes, presentations, poster sessions, and discussions
    • Finalist presentations and announcement of the 5th Global Health Supply Chain prize
  • Nov 22, 2019:
    • Training on relevant best practice tools in supply chain management;
    • Academic session for doctoral students and young faculty to discuss research in global health supply chains

Attendees will thus get access to both best practice results, ideas regarding state of the art tools, as well as “how-to” ideas to improve performance in their respective contexts. In addition to standard paper presentations, the 12th summit will also have poster sessions. The Summit will thus provide a forum for attendees to learn from the community of global health care supply chain experts. Challenges in health care delivering remain urgent, but the adoption of innovative practices, technologies and coordinating agreements provides hope for a brighter future.

The 12th Global Supply Chain Summit will also announce the winner of the 5th Global Health Supply Chain Prize, details regarding application for this prize will be forthcoming soon. If you have an innovative application and operate in a low or middle income country, we encourage your share your success and become a contender for the prize. Selected finalists for the prize will have the opportunity to present their initiative at the conference to a panel of judges, who will select the winner.
