About the course

Supply Chain Management is increasingly considered as the backbone of the Pharma and Health sector making sure that the right product and service reaches the right patients at the right time, at the right condition and at the right price. With many different stakeholders, regulations and specific handling requirements Pharma Health Supply Chains are complex systems which face a myriad of challenges. Besides infrastructure constraints insufficient knowledge on how to manage the supply chain is seen as major root cause for inefficiencies, losses and waste. This training addresses key knowledge areas of the Pharma Health Supply Chain and provides an understanding of the overall supply chain concept highlighting the need for information sharing and collaboration amongst all actors.
