Remarks An integrated supply chain has visibility of information and activity up and down the chain, fewer steps in its processes, and greater coordination and predictability of demand between all the levels and actors in the system. This includes linking all the actors involved in managing essential health commodities into one cohesive supply chain management organization. The organization can oversee all functions, levels, and partners, ensuring an adequate supply of essential health commodities to the clients who need them.
