The project will support the ICRC to improve the reliable distribution of medical supplies in conflict (war) zones. Based on the analysis of several years of data from ICRC’s medical supply chain as well as a qualitative study of the ICRC’s organisational and process configurations, the project will identify root causes of poor information flow, model potential improvements, and propose implementable solutions. The goal is to avoid waste, improve medication availability for a better quality of service for conflict-​affected populations.
