I+solutions stands out for its innovative solutions, such as Medexis, a logistics management tool implemented in collaboration with the Burundian government. This innovation significantly improved product availability and reduced stock expirations.
Monchen highlights the importance of addressing the “last mile” in healthcare delivery, particularly in challenging regions like Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. They utilize the Informed Push Model (IPM), organizing medicine distribution via motorbike taxis and involving the community in inventory management.
The organization’s location in Woerden proves strategically advantageous, with proximity to Utrecht providing access to talent from local universities. Monchen commends the regional development agency, ROM Utrecht Region, for their active role in the international network.
I+solutions remains dedicated to constantly enhancing the pharmaceutical supply chain and achieving their mission of global healthcare access.
