Efficient procurement and supply chains are critical for ensuring access to lifesaving health products for populations around the world. With the help of US government-supported investments, the global community has made significant progress in strengthening global health procurement and supply chains in low- and middle-income countries, but gaps remain.

Where are the best opportunities to further strengthen the performance, responsiveness, and efficiency of global health supply chain programs? What role can USAID play in supporting sustainable, country-led procurement and supply chains as part of the agency’s ongoing work to advance partner countries on the “journey to self-reliance”? As USAID looks ahead to its next global health supply chain program, a panel of experts will explore these questions and present relevant recommendations from CGD’s Working Group on the Future of Global Health Procurement (final report forthcoming).

Please join us for this public event that will bring together country supply chain leaders, US government global health officials, and health financing experts. Read more on CGD’s work on global health procurement here.
