GAVI's statement on supply chain leadership

Next-generation immunisation supply chains require dedicated and competent managers as well as adequate numbers of skilled, accountable, motivated and empowered personnel at all levels of the health system. The Vaccine Alliance helps countries strengthen and build supply chain managers’ capacity by providing focused technical assistance, tools, training and other resources.

HR Country Support Package

This HR country support package for Immunization Supply Chain Managers was developed by the P&P priority working group. It provides a set of tools and guidelines to support and develop immunization supply chain managers to be able to effectively manage their supply chains. This package compliments already existing guidance and seeks to address the following broad questions:
  • How can I better understand the status of HR in my immunization supply chain?
  • What lessons can I learn from other countries and from the private sector?
  • How can I strengthen my leadership skills?
  • How can I develop the skills and technical competencies that I need to effectively manage my supply chain?
  • How can I build a comprehensive plan to meet all HR issues, not just training?
  • How can I strengthen co-ordination & collaboration to accelerate the effective implementation of Supply Chain improvement plans?
  • How can I improve performance and bring about sustainable change within my organisation?
By responding to these questions, it is expected that countries will be well along the route to strengthened Supply Chain leadership and HR for Immunization Supply Chain Management.
