The cStock approach is not just about technology; it is a supply chain strengthening approach for community health programs. This approach uses a combination of:
1. Mobile technology that supports demand-based resupply procedures and connects CHWs to their resupply facility
2. User-friendly dashboards to allow better visibility, accountability and transparency
3. IMPACT teams to strengthen data use and local problem solving to supply chain challenges.
The cStock approach has a number of key principles that make it effective. It is a flexible solution where users can interact with the system using whatever technology is available to them, feature or smartphone, computers, tablets. cStock links stock reporting to resupply.
