Body Text

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project recognizes that without strong leaders, robust systems of governance, and a proper regulatory environment, technological improvements won’t have their intended effect. That’s why our team takes a whole systems approach in promoting the policies, resources, and education needed for improved national supply chain management.

Our country teams work to foster civic participation, improve national policies around pharmaceutical registration and imports, and promote data-driven planning and decision-making at national and local government levels.
