In late April, health workers gathered in Livingstone, Zambia, for a two-week training on the new electronic Logistics Management Information System (eLMIS), in preparation for its deployment in health facilities nationwide. The eLMIS is a newsoftware that will transform Zambia’s health service and enhance the management of health commodities by transitioning from a paper-based system of data management to an electronic format. This new format, developed on an open source platform, is a revolutionary and cost-effective system that will foster better, faster, and more accurate reporting of supply chain data, reduce stockouts of health commodities, and ultimately provide increased access to medicines to improve healthoutcomes. The USAID | DELIVER PROJECT and Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) are among the partners supporting this initiative. Learn more at
