Using Digital Technology to Support Humanitarian Logistics

February 12, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT

HLA is running a free webinar in conjunction with ICT4D, Catholic Relief Services and Nethope on using existing ICT to better support supply chain management, particularly of health and humanitarian programs globally. The webinar will cover new digital technologies, as well as best practices.

Logistical challenges tend to overshadow any technology or programming challenges. Many illnesses are now preventable and most humanitarian needs can be addressed. The problem mostly lies in providing personnel, services, medicines, technologies, or other supplies, and information to those in need at the right time, in a reliable, sustainable, and cost-effective way. And the need is growing for better collective strategies between organizations to improve the reactivity and reliability of supply delivery for health and humanitarian programs during and after emergencies.

Expert speakers from diverse backgrounds will share lessons learned, introduce new digital technologies around information services, smart money and supply tracking, discuss last mile delivery challenges, and how to improve collaboration for a more effective and efficient humanitarian and health aid logistics.

Speakers include:

Sarah Penniman-Morin, Deputy Director for SCM Performance, Knowledge Management, and Learning, Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM), Catholic Relief Services

Eric Kiruhura, Digital Advisor – Disaster Management, World Vision International

Kim Shelsby, Director of Digital Supply Chain Solutions, Chemonics International

Shelley Taylor, Founder/CEO, Trellyz

Neil Rodrigues, Director Global Supply Chain, International Medical Corps

George Fenton, CEO, Humanitarian Logistics Association

Sonja Ruetzel, ICT4D Partnerships and Conference Manager, Catholic Relief Services
