Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management Project

Project Dates: April 2015 - November 2024
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.

  • Systems Strengthening: Build and enhance strong local systems to help stakeholders introduce, enhance, and/or institutionalize systems thinking-based approaches and tools to improve their supply chains for health commodities.
  • Global Supply Chain Leadership: Analyze and widely share market intelligence information and data for strategic decision-making with global stakeholders and work with them to prioritize commodity security on development agendas worldwide.
