The People That Deliver Initiative: Namibia’s Integrated Actions to Improve the Health Supply Chain Management Workforce

In November 2013, Namibia's Minister of Health presented a formal request to the People that Deliver (PtD) Board and member institutions for technical support to develop a sustainable strategy to improve access to health commodities. Led by the government of Namibia and supported by expertise from the People that Deliver Initiative and its members, notably the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Supply Chain Management System project and CapacityPlus, the PtD-Namibia collaboration sought to understand and improve Namibia’s public sector health supply chain management workforce, focusing on the Ministry of Health and Social Services' immediate priority: staff at the central medical store and regional medical depots. This synthesis report documents the PtD-Namibia collaboration’s findings and outcomes in five priority activity areas as well as its collective results, all of which have great potential to have a positive impact on the country’s supply chain management workforce development and planning.
