SoftWorks to develop Sierra Leone Health Commodity Dashboard

SIAPS Sierra Leone plans to introduce a complementary approach for an enhanced information display platform or dashboard optimizing the use of existing stock management, dispensing and continuous performance system. SoftWorks was contracted to develop the dashboard consiering their experience in developing health commodity dashboards for other countries. The dashboard will ensure availability of data from each health facility and supply structure. This transparent system will provide access to stock status and consumption information that will improve forecasting and timely procurement using national and donor resources. The system will also serve as an early warning system that will contribute to averting stock-outs, avoiding emergency procurements and ensuring uninterrupted supply of all key products.
