Please join us on September 25th at 12:00-1:00 p.m. GMT for a walkthrough of a simple, freely available tool to support COVID-19 supply planning. To register for the webinar, click here.

The emergence of COVID-19 has thrust healthcare supply chains into the spotlight. Healthcare workers are at the front lines of the outbreak response, testing and treating patients while taking all relevant infection control precautions to reduce the risk of further contagion. The availability of equipment and commodities to support infection prevention, testing, and case management has therefore become a top priority for all health systems.

Designed by JSI and IAPHL, this COVID-19 supply planning tool has been developed to complement the WHO tool by turning forecasted requirements quantities into ideal shipment sizes and timings.

The JSI and IAPHL COVID-19 supply planning tool can be found here and the WHO forecasting tool can be found  here. A recording of our previous webinar explaining the WHO forecasting tool is also available here.

If you have any questions in advance, please send them directly to and they will be addressed in the session.
