Global Fund Ghana LMIS/RLO/LMD Support
Ghana’s Supply Chain Master Plan establishes a vision for an efficient health supply chain, which will only be realized through enhanced logistics management, data visibility, and last-mile distribution.
The Ghanaian Ministry of Health’s five-year Supply Chain Master Plan calls for strong supply chain systems that enable effective management of health commodities. The Global Fund’s Ghana LMIS/RLO/LMD Support program partners with the ministry to achieve this vision across the country. The program focuses on logistics management information systems (LMIS), last-mile distribution (LMD), warehousing and distribution optimization, and framework contracts, which expedite the procurement of essential medicines. The program builds off previous work by the Global Fund, through Chemonics, to develop and roll out a national LMIS. Through technical assistance, the program supports the realization of Ghana’s Supply Chain Master Plan by providing high-quality data to supply chain decision-makers and ensuring patients have access to the health commodities they need.
