Certification in Humanitarian Medical Logistics Practices (MedLog)
The Certification in Humanitarian Medical Logistics Practices (MedLog) is offered as part of the Fritz Institute/CILT (UK) Humanitarian Logistics Certification Program. Developed for experienced humanitarian logisticians and medical specialists handling the medical supply, MedLog focuses on medical items’ special supply chain requirements, with emphasis on preventing the introduction of counterfeit or substandard items to the supply chain. MedLog was developed with funding from DFID, ECHO and USAID, by experienced logisticians from ICRC, IFRC, MSF-Switzerland, UNICEF, WFP and WHO, with inputs from IMC, Merlin, Oxfam-GB, and UNFPA.
MedLog is aimed at experienced logisticians and medical specialists handing the medical supply within humanitarian organizations. The self-paced distance learning is designed specifically for those recently working (or plan to work) in operational supply chain positions within humanitarian organizations. There are no academic pre-requisites. Less experienced logisticians are recommended to take the Certification in Humanitarian Logistics program first.
The course consists of five units:
- Humanitarian Medical Supply Chains
