The Framework for OpenLMIS

There is a growing trend within low- and lower-middle-income countries and the development community working in those countries away from standalone information system projects toward comprehensive, enterprise-level health information systems. OpenLMIS was formed to accelerate and support that trend for the supply chain and logistics domain by establishing a community-run, shared repository of freely available resources for electronic logistics management information systems (eLMIS). This white paper proposes a framework for what OpenLMIS should do and how it will work by examining the vision for OpenLMIS, how the community will benefit from OpenLMIS, and how the OpenLMIS community is organized.
