InSTEDD worked together with CHAI Papua New Guinea on improving logistics of HIV drug distribution to the sites that need it. Sites place orders that may or may not match patient needs and doctors at sites may or may not be following recommended regimens. Improving order placement can help get the right drugs to the site as well as be used to detect inconsistencies and outliers in drug distribution. InSTEDD’s mobile phone gateways running on Android, which allows the applications to share a Google Android-based ‘gateway’ that sends and receives text messages and stores-and-forwards them to the actual application. This system helps eliminate stock-outs at sites* as well as reduce losses to 0.5% of yearly order* (Includes expiration, pilfering, damage).
