Using Systems for Data-Driven Decision-Making on Reproductive Health Commodities

In 2014, USAID supply chain projects began working with the Zambian government to pilot and scale up an electronic logistics management information system (eLMIS). This open-source supply chain software facilitates logistics data collection in low-infrastructure environments. The eLMIS has two versions. The Facility Edition, which manages inventory at the facility and automates the stock control card and daily activity registers, has been rolled out to more than 400 high-volume sites. The Central Edition is used to capture data for more than 2,600 sites in Zambia and has been deployed to five other countries.
