Various qualitative and quantitative data collection tools and indicators can help to monitor and evaluate commodity logistics systems performance and to promote product availability. Results from these indicators are analyzed to develop or modify project strategic plans, promote best practices in public health supply chain management, and report to various stakeholders.

Supply Chain Assessment and Monitoring & Evaluation Tools

To collect representative, point-in-time, data on how your supply chain is performing:

  • Logistics System Assessment Tool
    A qualitative diagnostic instrument that provides an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of a logistics  system.
         
  • Logistics Indicators Assessment Tool
    A standardized quantitative assessment instrument that measures product availability and logistics system functioning at service delivery points (SDPs) and warehouses. This tool is available in two adapted versions to assess antiretroviral (ARV) drug and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) test kit logistics system performance and commodity availability. 
  • Assessment Tool for Laboratory Services and Supply Chains (ATLAS)
    This is both a qualitative and quantitative data collection tool for assessing laboratory services and logistics systems. ATLAS is a diagnostic and monitoring tool that can be used to conduct a baseline survey, complete an annual assessment, or guide the work planning  process.

To routinely monitor supply chain performance:

 To assess human resources capacity development in public health supply chains:

To assess that the enabling environment, policies, and sufficient financing are available for ensuring products get to the people who need them (commodity security):

  • The Strategic Pathway to Reproductive Health Commodity Security (SPARHCS)
    A tool to help countries identify and prioritize key commodity security issues; assess current capacity for commodity security among country or regional programs, systems and policies; and shape commodity security strategic plans. 
  • Contraceptive Security (CS) Index
    The CS Index presents a set of indicators that can be used to measure a country’s level of CS and to monitor global progress toward reaching this goal over time. The indicators are aggregated to establish a composite index. 
      
  • CS Indicators
    A standard set of indicators to help program managers, advocates, and decisionmakers track country progress toward contraceptive security. The indicators can be adapted and updated routinely by the countries themselves.

To monitor and coordinate commodity pipelines:
