To save lives, CHWs must have access to basic medicines to treat the most common killer diseases and family planning commodities. Frequent lapses in stock represent one of the biggest challenges facing public health systems. In most of our direct operations, Living Goods works to ensure essential medicines and family planning commodities are in stock 100 percent of the time. We track inventory levels electronically in real time to predict and prevent stock-outs. We also support governments to effectively manage their own supply chains and to directly provide CHWs with free public sector medicines and family planning commodities, as we do in our partnership with the government of Isiolo County, Kenya. Living Goods developed a delivery service that enables CHWs to order by phone and have products delivered by motorbike, reducing both time and expense.
