Because Standard Code is a tight partner to brilliant teams in the global health world, we were present in a meeting where it became clear that there were coordination challenges between the multiple donors of a life-changing medicine. Too often a country wouldn't have sufficient medicine to meet the needs of its citizens.
We quickly brainstormed a tool that helps donors match their medicine stocks with each country's need. This solution is currently being rolled out. We're excited to see the results.
The central feature of the donor coordination tool is the map that shows countries color-coded by coverage, medicine availability, and medicine requirements. The map brings to life the problem that was once buried in an excel spreadsheet.
