With support from the USAID Global Health Supply Chain-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project, PPM carried out a multi-stage process to development and internally validate the new plan, chaired by a representative of the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. Beginning in 2020, a technical working group led by the director of the PPM held weekly discussions to develop the new plan, including working with two local consultants to conduct an in-depth analysis and evaluation of the 2015-2019 strategic plan.
This assessment of the former plan showed positive results, a 65.2 percent success rate in achieving its objectives. Based on this evaluation, five sub-groups aligned with five key objectives for 2021-2025 met weekly to draft the new strategic plan, culminating with internal validation in February 2021.
The validation of the new strategic plan is an important milestone for PPM, which serves as a hub of excellence in the Malian health sector. This plan will continue to serve as PPM’s guiding document for the next five years in storing and distributing essential health commodities for the people of Mali.
