Humanitarian logistics and supply chain management in emergencies
Logistics and supply chain management remains an often overlooked but crucial aspect of our daily lives. In emergencies, programs and service delivery are only possible if the right product gets to the right people at the right place and at the right time. Due to natural disasters, famine, disease and other ongoing problems across the globe, the need for resilient and strengthened supply chains is becoming increasingly recognized.
The French Consulate General in Atlanta and Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health will host a one-day forum uniting French and American NGOs and health experts. Over the course of two panel discussions, experts will touch on medical commodities, the use of pre-packed kits and the opportunity for collaboration between corporations and humanitarian organizations. They will also explore the connection between Atlanta-based programming and organizations with global humanitarian logistics programing.
The forum is co-organized by the Consulate General of France in Atlanta and Emory University’s Center for Humanitarian Emergencies and Institute for Developing Nations, with the participation this year of the Georgia Tech Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems.
