Presented at the Health Humanitarian Logistics 2020 Conference on September 29, 2020, this presentation explains InfoMED, a comprehensive LMIS for commodity management which captures patient data and triangulates it with data on drug availability. By ensuring interoperability with DHIS-2, InfoMED builds on previous investments and supports commodity availability, especially during emergencies like COVID-19. The implementation of InfoMED in the DRC has increased data availability and sharing, promoted rational use of medicines, and improved access to services and commodities, ultimately improving patient health outcomes.
