Nigeria Supply Chain Management, Warehousing and Distribution

Project Dates: August 2016 - November 30, 2021
By combining parallel donor-funded warehousing and distribution supply into a single streamlined supply chain, the project facilitates the provision of critical life-saving HIV and malaria health commodities to the people of Nigeria.

To supplement the warehousing and distribution capacity of the Global Fund’s grantees in Nigeria, Chemonics provided supply chain management services for warehousing and distribution of Global Fund-financed HIV and malaria health commodities.

  • Increase the reach and availability of HIV and malaria-related health products, such as long-lasting insecticide-treated nets, by providing distribution services to move products from Central Warehouses to State Warehouses, and from Central and/or State Warehouses to health facilities
  • Provide malaria data collection, recording, and reporting services to enhance supply chain decision-making and mitigate stockouts
  • Transport specimens and result return services for HIV diagnostic testing in line with the National Integrated Sample Referral Network services in accordance with international best practices
  • Handle waste management and proper disposal so that all expired health products are disposed of adequately and not available for any prohibited sale, distribution, or misuse.
