The Integrated Pharmaceuticals Logistics System (IPLS) Reduces Drug Stock Outs in Ethiopia’s Amhara and Oromia Regions


This poster concludes:

  • Health facilities implementing IPLS experienced lower TB drug stock out than those health facilities not implementing IPLS.
  • Scale up and continuous follow up of IPLS implementation is recommended. 
  • Expanding and sustaining IPLS in Ethiopia will require:
    • Training all health facility staff on IPLS implementation;
    • Distributing IPLS recording and reporting tools to all facilities and training staff to use them;
    • Conducting regular supportive supervision for health facility staff.
