Final Mile Event: Kicking off a US chapter of the International Association of Professional Health Logisticians (IAPHL) and the COVID-19 work of ReStart Partners
September 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Uncertainty in demand and supply, budget constraints, and rapidly evolving product needs during the COVID-19 global pandemic have resulted in unique supply challenges. However, while these challenges may be new to the US Health system, they are not unfamiliar to public health supply chains in low and middle income countries (LMIC). In looking to support our local supply chain response, we drew inspiration from the expertise, networks and tools developed in Global Health in the last 20 years. Rather than reinventing the wheel, Restart Partners, a newly formed PNW area non profit, sought to connect local and international communities. They recognized that we could learn a lot from Global Health experts in LMIC and sought to set up mechanisms for us to do so. This webinar discusses how we plugged into experts at the International Association of Public Health Logisticians and WHO to connect with US partners in the public, humanitarian, University, NGO and commercial sectors. They will also present some examples of their modeling work and refer to work by WHO and MIT.
