15th Annual GHSC Summit
RE-IMAGINING HEALTH SUPPLY CHAIN AND SYSTEMS FOR EQUITY, RESILIENCY, and COUNTRY OWNERSHIP

The last couple of years have highlighted several vulnerabilities in country health systems impacting not only their response to the pandemic but also their ability to continue to address other routine health issues. In the past two GHSCS events, we have discussed some of these issues taking stock of how supply chains have managed to cope with such stress, and discussed strategies that need to be developed to address the gaps and vulnerabilities on their journey to recovery. Looking beyond the pandemic, it is now being widely recognized that health systems, and supply chains supporting them, need to be transformed to address health issues in a holistic and integrated manner ensuring equitable access and increasing self-sufficiency. We need to develop next generation resilient health systems and the supply chains that support them, leveraging partnerships, bottom-up innovations, financing, workforce, and governance models to ensure equitable access to healthcare for all. A holistic and systems-based approach towards health systems and supply chains is needed to ensure end-to-end service delivery supporting diagnostics, essential medicines, and health care products to address current health issues as well as the growing burden of non-communicable diseases.

GHSCS 2022 will explore these issues through a combination of keynotes, panel discussions, and contributed talks. Like in the past, the conference will assemble a collection of experts that include government representatives, academics, NGOs, civil society, industry, donor and multilateral representatives to explore these topics. The committee is particularly interested in capturing the voices from the field to learn and share experiences related to the conference theme and mechanisms to achieve progress.
