Country Approach
Body

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project offers procurement and technical assistance in Cambodia to help ensure uninterrupted availability of high-quality health commodities, focusing on those to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS and malaria.

For HIV-related technical assistance, we support the Ministry of Health (MOH) to replace its outdated Drug Information Database applications by assisting in the design and implementation of the pilot for an integrated logistics management information system (LMIS). Financed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the web-based LMIS will have improved functionality such as an early warning notification and alert system for pharmaceutical expiry and stockouts.

For malaria-related technical assistance, we work with the Cambodian MOH and the National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control to strengthen the malaria health commodity supply chain. We also support the procurement and distribution of commodities to prevent and reduce the spread of malaria infection.
