Title: Leveraging a Demand Led Supply Model to Support Regional Distribution Strategies
Summary: A keen understanding of the regional challenges associated with the movement and distribution of clinical supplies both intra-region and across borders plays a significant role in the development of an optimal distribution strategy. However even with a clear understanding of the often complex requirements that must be met in order to effectively move supplies the resulting supply chain efficiency and risk profile may still be sub-optimal when using traditional distribution strategies. Demand led supply is emerging as an alternative which among its advantages allows for greater flexibility to develop and implement region-specific strategies.
• Review the essential components of a demand led supply model and how it differs from other commonly used distribution models
• Understand how demand led supply can be used to support regional distribution strategies and improve supply chain risk management
• Identify the cost, time, planning, implementation and in-region flexibility advantages that a demand led approach may offer over traditional distribution strategies
