Supply chain




The Supply Chain Investment Coordination & Advocacy (SCICA) program in Democratic Republic of Congo aims to create better coordination of donor-funded and government-funded supply chain investments. Since 2020 we have been working with the DRC government to implement an approach that manages investments in supply chain strengthening in a limited number of national programs and provinces in order to:

  • Improve supply chain performance
  • Improved use of both donor-driven and domestic supply chain investments at the national and subnational level

How it

  • In DRC, the SCICA approach is currently implemented in 5 programs that cover products related to reproductive health, nutrition, HIV-AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, as well as and in three provinces (Kinshasa, Haut Katanga and Tshopo).
  • By 2025, we hope this approach will be extended to all DRC provinces with technical assistance from partners.
  • Moving forward we hope to replicate the SCICA solution in more African countries.
