Health Supply Chain in Senegal, with a Focus on the Last Mile (Senegal)


Overview

WDI extensively reviewed literature, conducted interviews with in-country stakeholders and consulted with cross-sector supply chain experts to develop a report on behalf of the Gates Foundation that provided recommendations for strengthening Senegal’s health supply chain, specifically in regard to last-mile delivery. WDI also delivered recommendations for better incorporating service to the last mile in the national health supply chain strategy. Senegal faces several challenges to ensuring that existing health supply chain continues to expand its reach, product range and quality of service. Several initiatives to improve the function and reach of the health supply chain have been implemented over the previous decade, including the “Informed Push Model,” which has achieved notable success at increasing product availability at the “last mile.”
