Body Text

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project recognizes that without a strong, skilled workforce at the national and local levels, system-based and technological improvements won’t have their intended effect. Achieving a well-performing, motivated workforce requires strengthening the organizational systems, processes, and environment in which supply chain workers perform their duties.

Our vision is to foster self-sufficient organizations with institutionalized systems. This in turn will help ensure high performance from a professionalized and consumer-centered workforce for effective and efficient delivery of health commodities through to the last mile.

We go beyond basic capacity building to look at long-term solutions to organizational and people development, considering the development of human resources systems as an investment. We do this by providing technical support to continuously improve the systems, processes, and factors affecting an organization’s ability to plan for, manage, and support professionalized national cadres of supply chain professionals.
