Aligning Health Supply Chain Maturity with Technology Transfer in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

1st January 2020

This is a study of the constraints on the introduction of technology in low- and middle-income country (LMIC) supply chains. Some of these countries do not recognise the absorptive capacity that must be in place to enable the diffusion of technology. In the absence of such capacity, major challenges can arise in a country after the technology transfer takes place. Therefore, to overcome this gap in the literature, we attempt to understand the role of technology transfers in the public health supply chains of LMICs, focusing on identifying the appropriate maturity stage for technology to be introduced.
