Costing Study Helps Optimize Warehousing and Transportation in Peru

By Holly Deaton | 11 Jan, 2016

In 2015, Peru’s Ministry of Health (MOH), in partnership with the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, implemented and co-funded a costing study for warehousing and transportation in La Libertad Region. The study helped document, for the first time, the specific warehousing and transportation costs of a sample of 304 preventive and life-saving medicines in La Libertad. After the study, the Minister of Health, the Director of Logistics Unit for Strategic Medicines (DARES), and health region Directors committed to implement the costing methodology in the rest of the country. Learn more about the study at http://bit.ly/1PohWLk (in English and Spanish).

Holly, thanks for sharing. From the link you provided I only see links to the Spanish version of the report. Do you know if an English version exists? And if so, where it can be accessed? Thanks!
