People who conduct supply chain management tasks often have no formal training. Many institutions utilize in-service training activities, which take personnel away from their work, are expensive to implement, and often rely heavily on external technical assistance. In response, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT has enabled countries on three continents to introduce supply chain management courses into pre-service curricula. This guide was developed to assist institutions of higher learning, governments, nongovernmental organizations, and other stakeholders in establishing pre-service training programs for the supply chain management of health commodities.
