A Better World Through Supply Chain
Location: Lagos, Nigeria
Through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ASCM is solving critical public health supply chain challenges including: improving weak distribution systems, implementing reliable monitoring and data-collection mechanisms, and elevating the maturity of local supply chain communities. ASCM will support the Ministries of Health in sub-Saharan Africa to enhance the capabilities of their supply chain practices to provide consistent and affordable access to food, medicine, vaccines and other imperative essentials.
Due to concerns around coronavirus (COVID-19), and in accordance with health guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the African Ministries of Health, we have made the decision to postpone this event until further notice. Please continue to check back for updates.
