Reimagining Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Supply Chains

The Healthcare Anchor Network’s (HAN) white paper Reimagining Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Supply Chains calls for national leadership and healthcare sector collaboration to create production capacity for American-sourced and manufactured PPE supplies.

­­The white paper was released at the HAN Anchoring Resilience: Aligning Supply Chains and Impact Purchasing for Community Health summit on November 18, 2020. The white paper included interviews with 17 HAN member senior supply chain executives and other leaders who discussed the supply chain challenges and stressed the critical need to build resilient supply chains. We will need leadership and commitments from health sector leaders in order to have significant impact.
