Call for abstracts 2nd PtD Human Resources for Supply Chain Management Conference Copenhagen Denmark 28-30 October 2014 Background: The People that Deliver (PtD) Initiative is a broad global coalition of organizations that strives to improve the health supply chain workforce in developing countries. It is based on the global recognition that without trained professionals to manage the health supply chains, medicines and other health supplies do not reach the patients who need them. Since the first PtD conference in Geneva, Switzerland in 2011 there has been significant international and country-based activity in pursuit of our vision; ‘to build global and national capacity to implement evidence-based approaches to plan, finance, develop, support and retain the national workforces needed for the effective, efficient and sustainable management of health supply chains.’ Under the theme of ‘Working together to professionalise health supply chains’ the 2nd PtD Human Resources for Supply Chain Management Conference will showcase a variety of international and country-based activities addressing the following five sub themes: i. Assessment and planning Assessing HR systems, creating policies, plans and SOPs for an effective and sustainable SCM workforce ii. Leaders and change agents Engaging powerful stakeholders and SCM leaders to put HR for SCM on the agenda and enact local change iii. Workforce development Developing the SCM workforce through contextualised pre-service education and continued professional development iv. Increasing performance Increasing the performance and retention of SCM personnel within an organisational context v. Professionalisation Developing minimum standards for health logistics and supply chain personnel, and growing professional communities You are invited to submit abstracts that document the work of your organization in line with our theme to be considered for an oral or poster presentation at the conference. Publication in Journal All accepted abstracts will be published in a special conference issue of the “Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice”. The People that Deliver encourages French and Spanish abstract submissions. Please submit your abstract using the attached template, in English, by email, to by 11 July 2014. Abstracts will be reviewed by the PtD Conference Taskforce with all submissions notified after 31 July 2014. Abstracts selected for oral presentation and poster display will be sent guidelines to aid preparation. For further information please visit or email
