Strengthening the Logistics Management Information System

In 2020, together with the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) and with funding from The Global Fund, Shifo started a collaboration to modernise Logistics Management Information System (LMIS) in Haiti. So far, we have successfully introduced and implemented a new paper-based LMIS tools in 3 departments of the country in  a total of 195 Health Service Delivery Points that cover the ‘Malaria, TB, Vaccination, Nutrition, Family Planning, Essential Medicines, HIV/ARV’ programs.

The goal of the project is to implement Smart Paper Technology in the health facilities to bring more accurate and timely data visibility on availability, consumption and other supply chain indicators for all medicines and supplies. Supply-chain data generated through SPT will be integrated into the DHIS2 System for data visibility at the district and national levels. The preparations and plans to Scale up Nationally in Haiti were also made from the beginning of 2021, and iwe partnered with The Global Fund and The World Bank to begin the scale-up work to the rest of the departments of Haiti. This Phase 2 Scale up will be done over two years through to 2023 and will see it cover 10 departments and a total of 755 HF's.


What we have done

SPT now can work in all health facilities across the country

Together with the scale-up, the solution proved to bring systemic change when health facilities and decision-makers can access to timely and accurate data

It proved to be scalable, since the technology is easily adaptable to the context and Shifo is held responsible on capacity building in the field.

More importantly, we put in place a system that can be sustained by the Government of Haiti in a short period, without the need of external founding.

External Evaluation results

The following data use interventions will be integrated across the health care chain:

Health facilities receive their key performance indicators to help them know their performance and improve on stock management.

Decision-makers and planners at district and national levels review the performance of each health facility/area using the integrated dashboard and reports. The insights help decision-makers identify and close the gaps in strengthening supply-chain, to ensure better availability of medicines and supplies.
