The Supply Chain Coordinator will work closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to design and oversee the implementation of scalable Supply Chain solutions necessary to support Liberia’s national Community Health Assistant (CHA) program, building on existing SOPs and practices. The Coordinator will provide Supply Chain technical assistance and capacity building support for senior staff at the MOH Supply Chain Management Unit (SCMU) and the National Drug Service (NDS) to identify and to address supply chain bottlenecks at all levels of the health system, with an emphasis on factors impacting availability of drugs and supplies for the CHA program. The Coordinator will work with MOH officials and their partners to plan for the inclusion of commodities, supplies, and equipment needs of the national CHA program in national quantifications, forecasts, procurement, and distribution plans. With technical input from across LMH, the Coordinator will help ensure that optimal commodities, supplies, and equipment are procured, transferred to county, delivered to CHAs, used and standardized (through training materials and standard operating procedures) across counties and implementing partners involved in implementing the national CHA program.
