Being landlocked is associated with trading disadvantage compared to coastal countries which reflects in lower development levels, inequality, vulnerability, poverty and weak economic growth as a whole. The aim of this study is to investigate the Supply Chain issues faced by healthcare and education sectors in Malawi. This has been accomplished by through a systematic review of post graduate supply chain dissertations written by students enrolled at University of Bolton. The findings indicate a wide range of issues that are contributing to poor performance of these sectors resulting in inventory stock outs, poor delivery performance and poor service delivery.
