Final Mile Event: Kicking off a US chapter of the International Association of Professional Health Logisticians (IAPHL) and the COVID-19 work of Restart Partners

Host Organization: Global WA


Uncertainty in demand and supply, budget constraints, and rapidly evolving product needs during the COVID-19 global pandemic have resulted in unique supply challenges. However, while these challenges may be new to the U.S. Health system, they are not unfamiliar to public health supply chains in low and middle income countries (LMIC). In looking to support U.S. local supply chain response, a group of logistics experts drew inspiration from the networks and tools developed in Global Health in the last 20 years.

Rather than reinventing the wheel, Restart Partners, a newly formed PNW area non profit, sought to connect local and international communities. Restart recognized that the U.S. could learn a lot from Global Health experts in LMIC and sought to set up mechanisms to do so. This webinar discusses how Restart plugged into experts at the International Association of Public Health Logisticians and WHO to connect with U.S. partners in the public, humanitarian, University, NGO and commercial sectors. Restart will also present some examples of their modeling work and refer to work by WHO and MIT.
