Matthew Attah is a team lead for the Procurement and Supply Management project in Nigeria. He first heard about IAPHL in 2012, when he attended a training facilitated by John Snow, Inc. (JSI). Since then, IAPHL has exposed Matthew to many resources, training opportunities, and conferences, including the Global Health Supply Chain Summit, which he attended in 2015.
Challenges to Matthew’s public health supply chain management include poor-quality service-delivery level data, low levels of logistics management information system automation, poor visibility, and traceability of donated health products. Despite these challenges, he knows that his efforts improve access to life-saving medicines in Nigeria.
Matthew has made a career of bettering his country’s supply chain, and the collegial and professional support he gets from IAPHL makes his work a bit easier and a lot more enjoyable.
