Capacity Building of the National Team for Managing the Logistics Chain

Deploying the optimized logistics system requires the involvement of a competent and motivated national team. The team must be capable of providing quality technical support to actors working at various levels of the health pyramid; establishing an effective monitoring and evaluation system; and designing appropriate solutions. AMP is enhancing the skills of this team by providing its members with access to suitable training programs (supply chain modeling, training for trainers and supportive supervision); assisting with the drawing-up of protocols and standard operating procedures (situation analyses, planning and executing the logistics system); creating a computerized system for logistics management; and promoting evidence-based decision-making.

This team (known as the coordination technical group) is represented on the national committee for health product supplies to ensure there are links between the different supply chains in Benin's health sector and to foster synergies between them.
