The USAID Electronic Supply Chain Management Information System (eSCMIS) is transforming the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) Electronic Logistics Management Information System (eLMIS) in Zambia. We work closely with the MOH, Zambia Medicines and Medical Supplies Agency (ZAMMSA), Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ), and other key supply chain partners.
Our vision for the eLMIS is a state-of-the-art, open-source digital platform that provides end-to-end, real-time supply chain visibility to support improved decision-making, accountability, and fiscal responsibility. eSCMIS’ long-term goals are a more efficient and sustainable supply chain, a more effective health system, and better health outcomes.
A large part of our work is to equip the government and local supply chain partners to take full ownership of the eLMIS by the end of the project. We have created a sustainability and transition plan covering all aspects of system management, including public-private partnerships (PPPs) to increase financial sustainability.
The USAID eSCMIS project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). JSH is the prime partner in this project and will work in partnership with John Snow, Inc., and the Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ).
