Strengthening the Supply Chain in Zanzibar to Save Lives: Supply Chain Accomplishments

USAID | DELIVER PROJECT

Over the last decade, investments made by the Government of Tanzania toward the strengthening of public health supply chains in that country have had a positive impact on the health and well-being of its citizens. Both the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT and Supply Chain Management System (SCMS)—working in concert with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children— have made significant contributions in making supply chains more effective and efficient. 

In Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous government within The United Republic of Tanzania, numerous development partners, including the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT and SCMS, undertook various initiatives toward the strengthening of public health supply chains. Strengthening the Supply Chain in Zanzibar to Save Lives: Supply Chain Accomplishments, discusses these initiatives, including the design and rollout of the Zanzibar Integrated Logistics System (ZILS), infrastructure enhancement for Central Medical Stores (CMS) warehouses, and  the implementation of mSupply, a warehouse management system.
