Procurement plays a critical role in ensuring the availability of essential quality-assured medicines at all times at an affordable price for the people that need them.

Often international donor organisations and governmental organisations are involved in funding medical programs, resulting in the need of professionally run procurement processes. This course pays special attention to meeting the most common donor requirements and public procurement regulations.

The course guides the student through all steps of the procurement process, such as supplier selection, how to select the best value offer, contracting, quality assurance, measuring supplier performance and much more.

The objective of the course is to provide students solid knowledge about and a good understanding of the procurement process that will help them implement and/or professionalise procurement processes.

The procurement course is suitable for procurement/purchase officers, logistic officers, health officers and professionals with a responsibility in procurement, members of tender committees, pharmacists, program managers and supply chain managers in the public and private sector.

There are many challenges ensuing from the increasing number of stakeholders in the health sector of developing countries. Different stakeholders often have different funding mechanisms and reporting requirements, which makes quantification of essential medicines and medical supplies more complicated. The course addresses the challenges faced during the forecasting and quantification of essential medicines, including HIV/AIDS medicines, antimalarials and TB medicines. It aims at building up the participants’ capacity to master the forecasting and quantification tasks and to decide for the appropriate procurement planning process based on a profound analysis of the data.

In the health sector, there is a growing interest in the development and use of indicators as tools for monitoring the quality and performance of the supply chain management of medicines and medical supplies. The use of these tools can assist countries in monitoring progress in program implementation, evaluate performance objectively and revise strategies on the basis of systematic assessment. Improved M&E can contribute significantly towards better planning and management of the supply chain in order to promote efficient and sustainable access to medicines.

The course is designed for experienced professionals involved in SCM. They will learn how to systematically use these indicators to monitor the progress, evaluate the performance and improve the program. Donor agencies, project leaders, and technical and implementing agencies will also benefit from using these tools to harmonize information demands and compare programs across different countries.

Many of the challenges related to healthcare quality and stock-out situations in low and middle income countries are consequences of poor warehouse management of medicines. Appropriate warehousing of medicines, health products and medical laboratory supplies is an essential component of the supply chain management system, required to maintain the integrity of the health products and prevent stock-out or overstocking at any given time.

This course is designed to introduce you to good warehousing practices for medicines and health products within the health system. We will look at warehouse operations in detail covering the receipt, storage and dispatch of essential medicines. Other topics directly related to warehousing are health and safety, waste management and inventory control. Special focus will also be placed on monitoring and evaluation indicators for warehousing, quality assurance, and rational use.

Ensuring the quality of medicines is a major public health concern. The emergence of substandard and counterfeit medicines, coupled with inefficient supply chain systems, not only poses a risk of negative health outcomes but also leads to economic losses and lack of trust in the health system. To address these issues and develop evidence-based strategies, it is important that people at all levels, from policy makers to primary healthcare workers appreciate and comprehend the need for effective QA systems.

This course will introduce you to the concepts and main principles of quality assurance, and will develop further skills and knowledge in different aspects of quality assurance such as pharmaceutical regulation, pharmacovigilance and quality control of medicines.

Poor inventory decisions can disrupt healthcare services, erode an organisation’s profitability, sustainability and generally wreak havoc on the supply chain. A major fraction of expenditure in many organisation are spent on inventories which if not managed properly may severely impact on quality and service delivery in a resource-constraints environment.

This course focuses on inventory and its associated information systems and technologies. These two components are important as they influence availability of medicines, patients treatment outcomes and ultimately performance ratings of healthcare. Join us as we unravel together the critical role of inventory in healthcare and how to achieve uninterrupted flow of health commodities to patients and end users!

The purpose of this System Use training  is to provide an overview of  knowledge and skills required for Users to operate the Ghana integrated Logistics Information System (GhiLMIS).

Upon successful completion of this module, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the Ghana health supply chain and rationale for the integrated logistics information system.
  • Explain and systematically implement process steps in the Ghana integrated Logistics Information System (GhiLMIS).
Many of the issues of healthcare quality and safety are consequences of poor management of pharmaceuticals. Globally it is estimated that an average 25% of the total health expenditure is on medicines, with poorer countries spending as much as 30%. Knowledge of the full supply chain cycle of pharmaceuticals and practical skills to enhance its performance are important, not only for managers in leadership positions but for all health workers. Supply chain management activities are fundamental to any health programme's performance and all personnel involved, whether it's an inventory manager in a warehouse, a doctor in a health facility or a procurement officer at the central medical store, must have a good understanding of the basic principles of managing health commodities.

This course is designed to introduce you to the basic concepts of supply chain management with specific focus on pharmaceuticals and health commodities in a developing country context. Whilst covering a broad range of topics, the course delivery will emphasize the importance of integrating supply chain activities for overall health system strengthening.

A lack of qualified human resource base in the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector is one of the challenges for pharmaceutical industries, especially in developing and emerging countries. Local manufacturers often struggle to compete and even survive. Not being in line with international quality standards, they are prevented from passing WHO pre-qualification, participating in international tenders and entering international markets.The national medicines regulatory agencies (NMRAs) of these countries are also often short of qualified staff, especially with regard to qualification in GMP, GMP inspection and dossier evaluation.

This e-learning course provides an introduction to the basic principles of GMP and GMP inspection, focusing on WHO GMP standards and requirements as one of the major GMPs. Course participants will develop an understanding about the importance of implementing GMP in their daily working routine, starting from personnel hygiene to quality documentation and many other GMP requirements. In the end, these capacity building measures in the area of GMP and GMP inspection will make the local pharmaceutical sector, including the NMRAs, better equipped for local production and regulation of quality assured essential medicines.
