OVERVIEW

For program managers, technical assistance providers, donors, and policymakers, this paper describes the key elements of a procurement management system for health commodities—from product selection through the bid management process to the receipt of goods—and the type of human and organizational capacities needed to carry out these functions. The analysis also examines the range of available purchasing and financing strategies and options to support and strengthen health commodity supply chains.
