In Episode 12, we explore thinking about supply chains outside of the box, where we can often get stuck in academic discussions. The impacts of supply chains can quickly shift to rights-based discussions. This is Part 2 of our lightning talk with Pretty Mubaiwa, PhD Public Law Candidate and UCT Regional Coordinator for the Africa Resource Center. Pretty works in disruptive supply chain to provide critical medicine, access, and care at the point of need. She specializes in international public law and women's rights.
It’s time we expand our thinking around supply chain and how it’s a powerful conduit that can impact the lives of many, particularly the lives of women. How does supply chain best serve the people who need access the most…access to healthcare, medicine, sexual and reproductive health. Most of this access happens because of supply chains.
In this episode, we discuss how supply chains provide access to human health as a basic right which involves translating rights from the United Nations to the individual communities who need critical supplies, stakeholder engagement in defining the future of humanitarian supply chains, and the amazing work happening at the Africa Resource Center.
