USAID DELIVER PROJECT launches new website
20th June 2008
Please explore the new USAID | DELIVER PROJECT website at http://deliver.jsi.com/dhome. It contains real-time information about shipments of health supplies-such as contraceptives, personal protective equipment for avian influenza control, and anti-malarial medicines-procured by the project on behalf of USAID or by USAID´s central commodity procurement system. The new website features information about the commodity security status of USAID-supported countries, reference materials on commodity security and logistics, and links to other sources of information.
Intended to play a central role in the project´s efforts to increase the availability of essential health supplies in public and private services, the website facilitates and improves access to commodity security, supply chain management, and health commodity information for logistics professionals in the developing world and serve as an intranet for project staff.
New and Improved Website Features:
My Commodities (for registered users): Find information on orders and shipments, run shipment summary reports, or access product catalogs on essential health commodities, such as contraceptives, condoms, anti-malarial medicines and insecticide treated nets, and avian influenza prevention and response equipment and vaccines. This new My Commodities section also serves as the NEWVERN replacement (from the former DELIVER project) with many enhanced features for the tracking and monitoring of shipments.
Topics: Learn about supply chain essentials; policy and advocacy; organizational strengthening; and monitoring, evaluation, and project performance as they relate to logistics. This new section will also provide information about improving logistics for specific categories of health commodities, such as family planning, HIV/AIDS, labs, malaria, avian influenza, and essential medicines.
Tools: Download supply chain management, pipeline monitoring and procurement planning, and quantification software, logistics assessment tools, and other resources.
Publications: Read about the latest efforts to assess and strengthen supply chains in countries throughout Africa, Asia and the Near East, Europe and Eurasia, and Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as innovations, best practices, and lessons learned in supply chain management.
