Our History

PFSCM was established in 2005 to implement one of the world’s largest public health supply chains, the Supply Chain Management System Project (SCMS); a project of the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

PFSCM managed this program for over a decade, and delivered more than $2.8 billion in health care products to 66 PEPFAR-supported countries, and managed the procurement and distribution of over 18 500 deliveries.

Today, the work of SCMS continues to aid millions of people around the world as the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program.

In 2009, PFSCM was selected as a PSA for the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria’s Pooled Procurement Mechanism (PPM). The Global fund is a major financing institution in the fight against HIV, TB and malaria in 140 countries. PFSCM was awarded new contracts with the Global Fund in 2013 and 2019. 

PFSCM is currently contracted as Global Fund PSA for:

  • Rapid Diagnostic Tests for HIV and Malaria programs,
  • Viral Load and Early Infant Diagnostics, Other Diagnostics for HIV, TB and
  • Malaria programs, and Laboratory and Medical Supplies,
  • and Medical Equipment and Devices.

PFSCM has also recently been contracted by the Global Fund to execute additional supply chain and sourcing services to help countries resolve procurement bottlenecks, overcome supply chain management challenges, and to facilitate timely access to diagnostic tests and related supplies for the detection of SARS-COV-2.

In the first three quarters of  2020, PFSCM has procured $47.2 million worth of COVID-19 diagnostic products and delivered 137 shipments to 56 countries maintaining an OTIF of 99%

Over the last 10 years we have procured more than $3.9 billion in health care products for the Global Fund and delivered more than 17,700 shipments to 91 countries, making the Global Fund our largest client. 

Traditionally, PFSCM worked with large donors and the countries supported by those donors, but in 2010 we opened our services to Ministries of Health, countries with domestic funded public health programs, other non-government organizations (NGOs), and privately operated health initiatives and programs.

Today, we support a number of organizations and countries with direct and/or once-off procurement services, as well as technical assistance and in-country logistics services. Our client base stretches from Latin America across Africa and Eastern Europe to Central Asia, and we have experience in more than 104 countries worldwide. Our core expertise lies in developing solutions for the African continent.  More than 90% of products we buy are destined for sub-Saharan Africa.
