General Summary

The Procurement and Supply Management (PSM) project is one component of USAID’s larger Global Health Supply Chain (GHSC) program. The GHSC-PSM project is the primary vehicle through which USAID 1) procures and provides health commodities, 2) provides technical assistance to improve partner countries’ management of the supply chain, and, 3) collaborates with key international stakeholders to support global health initiatives.

GHSC-PSM is working on meeting the procurement and supply chain technical assistance needs of PEPFAR under Task Order 1 – HIV/AIDS, the President’s Malaria Initiative under Task Order 2 – Malaria, and Population and Reproductive Health under Task Order 3.

USAID has developed a Procurement Planning and Monitoring Report portal for HIV to identify and mitigate risk in the HIV supply chain. The portal currently hosts data from seven African countries, and is expected to expand to 20 countries this year. Commodities to be reported include adult and pediatric 1st and 2nd line ARVs and HIV rapid test kits (RTKs).
