SUSTAIN's Supply Chain Management Change Package

Since 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has been working with Uganda’s Ministry of Health (MoH) to improve HIV and AIDS service delivery at select health facilities through the Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (SUSTAIN) project.

USAID/SUSTAIN project has been supporting the strengthening of supply chain management systems at 18 health facilities: 12 regional referral hospitals, four general hospitals and two Health Center IVs. Specifically, SUSTAIN supported teams of health workers at these facilities to accurately quantify and submit timely orders to the National Medical Stores (NMS) for replenishment of supplies.

The purpose of this quality improvement change package is to provide a synthesis of the most robust and effective interventions to improve supply chain management in SUSTAIN-supported hospitals in Uganda.

This change package is part of a series of quality improvement change packages developed by the SUSTAIN project based on their work in Uganda. Other technical areas include: prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, laboratory, monitoring and evaluation, adolescent friendly health services, voluntary medical male circumcision, HIV care and treatment, nutrition, tuberculosis, and quality improvement.
