Recently, the members of the Getting Health Products to People:  Alliance for Health Logistics—that seeks to improve health product availability throughout Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)—produced a high-level infographic for health policymakers. Using this new material, the Alliance members will jointly encourage countries to invest—not only in procuring essential medicines—but also in the public health supply chains that deliver these products to the people who need them.

The graphic demonstrates that by committing between .05-.33 cents to supply chains for every US$ dollar invested in products, countries can strengthen their health programs, better serve their customers, and help meet their development goals.

The infographic is available in both English and Spanishand will be widely disseminated throughout the region by the 15 organizations:LACinfographic
