Successful emergency logistics management must take into account the complexities of providing operations support and logistics during health care interventions in disasters and outbreaks. But being well prepared can and does save lives and maintain the quality of those interventions.
Many Pacific Island Countries (PICs) have experienced devastating natural and health disasters in recent years, which has greatly impacted its people and health systems. The HELPR program (Health, Emergency, Logistics, Preparedness + Response) seeks to prioritise and empower in-country response capability.
We provide support and guidance for the supply of health crisis response caches, kits and field hospitals, including procurement and supply chain management for both warehoused and on-ground stock. This includes the supply of infectious disease outbreak response kits and tests for clinical and public health responders.
