The global leader in supply chain organizational transformation, innovation and leadership, the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM), has announced two upcoming leadership forums in Nigeria (March 19) and Kenya (March 24) to support public health and humanitarian supply chains in Africa. To help improve and modernize supply chain processes around the world, ASCM had launched a long-term strategic Global Health Initiative (GHI) and the leadership forums in Africa are part of the same efforts of ASCM.

To improve regional supply chain solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa, the leadership forum will bring together executives from the Ministries of Health in Sub-Saharan Africa and industry executives from multi-national companies all over the world. A tactical, strategic, and operational supply chain self-assessment tool called the Global Health Supply Chain Maturity Model has been designed to fulfill today’s increasingly interconnected and digital world by transforming the supply chain management.

It is Accessible anywhere; this easy-to-use tool doesn’t require an internet connection and will help standardize supply chains in these African countries.There has been an improvement in the delivery of food, medicine and other critical supply in countries such as Senegal, Nigeria, and Kenya due to the recent work focused on workforce development and digital transformation across supply chains in these countries. Among many others, speakers from The MPI Group, Zippy Logistics, and Coca-Cola are expected to attend the event.
