Call for Proposals
The GHSCS organizing committee is pleased to announce the call for
abstracts (http://ghscs.com/call-for-proposals/) for 2016 Summit. The 2016
conference will be held at the Golden Tulip Hotel, in Dar es salaam,
Tanzania. The 9th Global Health Supply Chain Summit (GHSCS) will focus
on Sustainable Health Outcomes, Accelerated Innovation, Effective Partnerships 
Enhanced Local Ownership

The 2016 summit will explore emerging trends in integrating supply chains,
better aligning incentives among the different entities in the supply
chain, ensuring constructive partnership between public and private
industry. We are also interested to explore ways to ensure effective local
ownership and management of health supply chains.   The conference will
assemble a collection of experts in the field - academics, country
planners, NGOs, logistics practitioners, expert from industry and donor
representatives to explore these topics.  The three day conference will
include two days of presentations and discussions and one day of training
regarding best practice tools in supply chain management.  Attendees will
thus get access to both best practice results as well as 'how-to' ideas for
implementation in their respective contexts. The format will involve
focused presentations of around 20 - 30 minutes, themed break-out
discussions, keynote speakers and training tutorials.

For 2016, the summit will focus on the following main themes:

  - Integrative supply chains:  Integration of supply chains across
products and donors.  Potential benefits and challenges

-  Innovative supply chain to ensure sustainable results

-  Local ownership:  Importance, how to achieve local ownership, what
are the main challenges, success stories.

The GHSC organizing committee would like to encourage representatives from
country governments to make abstract submissions according to the
conference themes. IAPHL will be offering a limited number of scholarships
to country government employees who have their abstract accepted for the
conference.  In addition the organizing committee will also provide a
limited number of scholarships.  The GHSCS Program Committee is currently
seeking proposals for focused presentations.
