Title: A Mechanism to Reduce Medical Supply Shortfalls During Pandemics | RAND

URL: https://www.rand.org/pubs/perspectives/PEA187-1.html

Collection: Global Health Events web archive

Description: If different regions face pandemic peaks at different points in time, supply shortfalls in regions suffering high infection caseloads (hot spots) can potentially be reduced by minimizing idle inventory and acquisitions of new supplies in regions with contemporaneously low infection caseloads (cool spots). This 16-page report discusses a potential backstopping mechanism for addressing that inefficient distribution. It also offers observations on how to evaluate whether the proposed mechanism could provide benefits over alternative responses in the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
