Photoshare and Supply Chain Management & Transportation

Supply chain management is the management of a network of interconnected businesses involved in the ultimate provision of products and services required by customers. Many problems in developing countries today are problems of access to the existing resources. Programs that are aimed at promoting health and development often struggle because of a lack of transportation and supply of the resources needed to implement the programs. For example, a family planning program's success depends on a well-managed supply chain for the delivery of contraceptives.
