Using physical tracking to better understand resource allocation.
Supply As A Service Metric
UNICEF acknowledges that they have trouble understanding and measuring the “last mile.” While they have a clear understanding of amounts of supplies going to various countries, their understanding of conditions in micro-regions is challenged by a lack of a reliable metric by which to measure services provided. This challenge spreads as towns and regions are expanded into larger portions of the countries, as well as the countries themselves. One of the roadblocks to success that has been mentioned on numerous occasions, is the ability to keep accurate records in clinics and other locations where basic education is minimal.
