To strengthen public health supply chains, policymakers, supply chain managers, and development partners need to know the real costs of delivering commodities. Identifying these costs and the sections of the supply chain that are driving costs can give decisionmakers the data they need to ensure adequate funding. However, this information is not always readily available.
In response, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT has developed a supply chain costing approach and set of user-friendly tools. The Guide to Public Health Supply Chain Costing: A Basic Methodology establishes a general methodology for supply chain costing. The Excel-based Supply Chain Costing Tool and supporting documents can be used to facilitate the data collection, analysis, and report generation required for a supply chain costing exercise.
