Supply Chain Assessment, Modeling and System Design
In 2010, in partnership with the provincial governments and the central Ministry of Health, VillageReach launched a national expansion project to roll out the Dedicated Logistics Systems (DLS), a new approach to supply chain system design aimed at increasing vaccination coverage rates, reducing monthly stock outs of medical commodities, increasing health worker productivity and capacity, improving cost-efficiency, and improving the overall quality of health services available at the last mile. The DLS introduced new efficiencies to Mozambique’s vaccine supply chain resulting in significant increases in fully vaccinated children, dramatic reduction in stock-outs, and reduced costs. With additional support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the DLS is now the cornerstone of the Accelerating Next-Generation iSC Program, an effort to encourage new models of vaccine supply chain system design in Mozambique and globally in order to reach the final 20% of children who currently do not have access to life-saving vaccines.
