Karuna Trust Northeast
Health Commodity Distribution
Empowering remote primary health centres (PHCs) to achieve reliable commodity availability
Karuna Trust manages PHCs in some of the most spectacularly remote areas of India. In Northeastern states, difficult terrain and poor network connectivity pose challenges to healthcare access. Essential medicines, vaccines, diagnostic kits, and other commodities, are often stocked-out with little upstream visibility and inherently long replenishment cycles.
Robust offline & dynamic auto-synchronization overcome the hurdles posed by prolonged network outage. Data captured via mobile apps and IoT devices seamlessly sync to the cloud when connectivity becomes available, even for a few moments on the ride home.
Health workers in remote areas maintain reliable availability of health products at their PHCs. Clear visibility has improved response times, and stock availability has remained high in spite of environmental and infrastructural obstacles. High quality data has further enabled strategic planning & smarter procurement.
