USAID funds humanitarian logistics scholarships

PRESS RELEASE

November 17, 2014: The Fritz Institute in the United States and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport are delighted to announce the results of a USAID sponsored scholarship programme for the Humanitarian Logistics Certification Programme (HLCP).

In recognition of the need for well-trained logisticians and experts in medical logistics, this year USAID has funded 41 full tuition scholarships. The selection panel received over 500 applications for the scholarship and were left with the difficult task of selecting the successful candidates.

30 scholarships have been awarded for the Certification in Humanitarian Logistics (CHL) and 11 scholarships awarded for the Certification in Humanitarian Medical Logistics Practices (MedLog).

The HLCP was developed with the goal of increasing the professional skills of logisticians and for medical specialists in the humanitarian supply chain. The MedLog qualification is designed to increase the ability to plan and operate the medical supply and to safeguard against the high rate of substandard and counterfeit medical items in the international medical supply chain for humanitarian logisticians and medical specialists.

The Certification Programme is recognised as best practice for training in humanitarian logistics and supply chain management and represents an exceptional instance of sustained interagency and private-public collaboration. The programme is guided by the Certification Advisory Group, which comprises senior logistics officers from UN agencies, international non-profit organisations, and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The Humanitarian Logistics Certification Program represents an exceptional instance of sustained inter-agency and private-public collaboration. The critical need for training and professional recognition of logisticians working in humanitarian organizations was identified during the Humanitarian Logistics Conferences of 2003 and 2004. Fritz Institute was the catalyst to develop the Certification Program, bringing together leaders in humanitarian logistics with experts in commercial logistics training to define the content and objectives of the program, and design and deliver the courses.
