Where We Work  |  Program

Supply Chain Investment Coordination and Advocacy (SCICA)

The program provides technical assistance to the DRC government to manage investments in supply chain strengthening, based on clearly defined objectives and the contribution of existing interventions, and that coordinates those interventions to achieve the greatest impact.

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

By 2025 we hope this approach is being used for three programs to cover products related to reproductive health, nutrition and HIV-AIDS and in four provinces:

  • Kinshasa
  • Kongo Central
  • Tanganyika
  • Kasaï Central
