Continuing from Part 1 of the series, which introduced concepts of health commodity forecasting, this webinar expands on the topic with a special focus on forecasting consumption for emergency kits, as well as other health kits. Participants will also learn what kits are, why they are used, and which kits are typically used in humanitarian/emergency response. Health supply chain managers and program staff involved in quantifying health commodity needs will find this webinar useful.
