Since the first People that Deliver (PtD) conference in Geneva, Switzerland in 2011 there has been significant international and country based activity in pursuit of our vision; ‘to build global and national capacity to implement evidence-based approaches to plan, finance, develop, support and retain the national workforces needed for the effective, efficient and sustainable management of health supply chains.’

Under the theme of  ‘People Must Deliver: Workforce excellence is essential for sustainable health supply chains’ the 2nd PtD Human Resources for Supply Chain Management Conference will showcase a variety of international and country based activities addressing the following five sub themes:

1. Assessment and planning. Assessing HR systems, creating policies, plans and SOPs for an effective and sustainable SCM workforce
2. Leaders and change agents. Engaging powerful stakeholders and SCM leaders to put HR for SCM on the agenda and enact local change
3. Workforce development. Developing the SCM workforce through contextualised pre-service education and continued professional development
4. Increasing performance. Increasing the performance and retention of SCM personnel within an organisational context.
5. Professionalization. Improving education approaches for health logistics and supply chain personnel, and growing professional communities.
