DHIS2 News: DHIS2-LMIS featured in landscape analysis of CHW supply chain tools
A newly published USAID technical brief includes DHIS2 as 1 of 5 digital solutions that allow community health workers to capture supply chain data
We are happy to share that DHIS2-LMIS has been featured in a new USAID landscape analysis as 1 of 5 viable digital solutions for CHW to capture supply chain data effectively. Additionally, a second, independent solution in their report (cStock) is also based on the DHIS2 platform.
Most technology solutions in global health are not designed with the community health worker (CHW) in mind. USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project conducted this landscape analysis, which is the first of its type. Along with the analysis is a supporting technical brief highlighting five mobile applications that government entities and local organizations can deploy for CHWs to capture supply chain data easily, report and request stock, and successfully provide services to their communities. Also included in the analysis and the technical brief are common and unique features of the mobile apps to enable countries and organizations to decide which application is most suited based on their programmatic and country needs.
The DHIS2 Logistics team continues to develop last-mile logistics solutions that can be implemented effectively in health facilities and by community health workers. Learn more on the the DHIS2-LMIS webpage.
