GLOBAL INITIATIVE TO
TRANSFORM PUBLIC
HEALTH SUPPLY CHAINS
The People that Deliver (PtD) initiative
was established in 2011 as a global
partnership of organisations focusing
on the professionalisation of supply
chain personnel. It is based on the
global recognition that without trained
professionals to manage health supply
chains, essential medicines and other
health supplies do not reach the patients
who need them.
SAPICS has been appointed a board member of People that Deliver,
a global initiative that aims to improve health outcomes by promoting
sustainable workforce excellence in health supply chain management.
PtD is governed by a board representing
governments, international donors,
multilateral agencies, nongovernmental
organisations, academic institutions,
professional associations and private
companies.
“More than half the world’s
population lacks access to the most
basic health services, and in many
developing countries, people are
dying because of inefficient supply
chains.” Mungo Park

has become the leading provider of
knowledge in supply chain management,
production and operations in Southern
Africa. “SAPICS builds operations
management excellence in individuals
and enterprises through superior
education and training, internationally
recognised certifications, comprehensive
resources and a country-wide network
of accomplished industry professionals.
This network is ever expanding and now
includes associates in other African
countries,” Park expands.
We are very proud to have this
opportunity to contribute to the global
drive to develop and professionalise
public health supply chains in order to
improve access to critical medicines and
save lives,” comments SAPICS president
Mungo Park.
He stresses that the robust, reliable
supply chains that are critical for positive
health outcomes require a skilled,
knowledgeable supply chain workforce.
Since its foundation in 1966, SAPICS
