Dagim Damtew Mengistu is a logistics officer at the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia.
The wide scope of public health supply chain is the most interesting thing he has learned from being a member of IAPHL. He learned about IAPHL when he was taking training on pipeline software given by an IAPHL administrator.
Dagim has been a supply chain professional since September 2013. He enjoys serving the public, especially the work on improving and ensuring the poor’s access to essential medicines. Limited capacity on supply chain, lack of accurate data, and poor LMIS a some of the largest challenges to his work.
IAPHL is helping him in his work in different ways. These include the publications in resource center, the moderated discussions, notifying updates regarding public supply chain activities and trainings.
