How Much Supply Do I Need?

A Webinar Series on Estimating Health Commodity Needs in Emergency Settings

Part 3: Using Supply Planning to Ensure a Continuous Flow of Health Products

Please join our supply chain experts Barbara Lamphere and Gregory Roche for this webinar, the third in a three-part series focusing on the quantification of health commodities, in humanitarian and emergency response contexts. This webinar series, conducted by JSI in collaboration with IAPHL, is funded by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA). To register for the webinar, use this link:

Building on concepts of preparation and forecasting covered in Part 1, and forecasting of kits covered in Part 2, this webinar focuses on supply planning, the third major activity of the quantification process. Participants will learn how to translate forecast quantities into procurement quantities and we will review how to schedule incoming shipments to ensure a continuous supply of products to the program. Health supply chain managers and program staff involved in quantifying health commodity needs will find this webinar useful.
