Organized Network of Services for Everyone’s (ONSE) Health
The findings of supply chain assessments led to the launch of Nouvelle Génération des Chaînes d’Approvisionnement (NGCA), or New Generation of Supply Chains in English in 2017 in Equatuer province, one of the hardest to reach provinces in the country. This initiative with catalytic funds from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation enabled system design and modeling work in Equateur province – developing the evidence needed to begin implementing creative solutions. By testing solutions in one of the most remote provinces first the supply chain design could then be adapted to other provinces throughout DRC. Today NGCA continues to build an integrated system of delivering products to the last mile. The program reaches 56 districts across six provinces across the country.
