OpenLMIS is a software platform specifically designed to manage health commodity supply chains in low-resource environments. VillageReach pioneered the concept of an open source electronic logistics management information system (LMIS) for vaccine supply chains, with an initial field implementation in Mozambique in 2010. VillageReach built on this experience to collaborate with ministries of health in Tanzania and Zambia to develop shared requirements for a new logistics management information system, laying the groundwork for a national scale implementation of OpenLMIS and national scale implementations in these countries. Since the initial concept was developed, VillageReach has played a leading role in the evolution of the OpenLMIS platform, which has now become multi-country, multi-donor, multi-implementer-driven open source community. The initiative is committed to shared learning and shared benefit, with the goal of continually improving the performance of health supply chains in low-and-middle-income-countries (LMICs) through improved data visibility and utilization. OpenLMIS has been implemented in six geographies: Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zanzibar.
