Cutting-edge Technologies in Global Health Supply Chains.

Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management Project

Project Dates: April 2015 - November 2020
To improve access to high-quality health products worldwide, the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management project employs cutting-edge technologies and industry best practices to make global health supply chains more efficient and reach more people.

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project works to transform and optimize global and national supply chains for health commodities. The project integrates supply chains for multiple health areas into one efficient supply chain that serves many of the world’s most vulnerable and difficult-to-reach communities. Operating in more than 55 countries, the project is designed to meet today’s critical global health challenges — eliminating HIV and AIDS, providing universal malaria coverage, helping women meet their family planning and reproductive health needs, combatting Zika, and improving maternal and child health.

By bringing together advanced technical solutions, a global team of experts, and proven private sector principles, GHSC-PSM reduces costs and increases efficiencies in global and national supply chains. The project provides technical assistance to partner countries throughout Africa, Asia, Central America and the Caribbean and fosters collaboration among supply chain stakeholders worldwide.
