Each year, PFSCM reflects on the role of supply chains in the fight to end malaria, and takes stock of our malaria activities during the last year.
In 2019, we procured more than $75.8 million worth of malaria commodities including pharmaceuticals such as artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT), testing products such as malaria rapid diagnostic test (MRDT) kits, and prevention products such as indoor residual spray.
PFSCM delivered 270 shipments of malaria commodities to 33 countries, ensuring lifesaving products reach malaria programs on time and in full.
Further, we saved our clients over $3.4 million in malaria commodity costs by implementing best procurement practices and obtaining price reductions.
Today, PFSCM also reflects on a decade’s worth of work in supporting one of the biggest donor-funded projects on the globe, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Since 2009, PFSCM has delivered over 2100 shipments of malaria commodities, worth more than $597 million, to 45 countries.
Meanwhile, we also observed important global malaria commodity sourcing developments, which will improve market competition, drive innovation and reduce risk. Read more about these developments in our article: Supply continuity for malaria programs during the COVID-19 crisis.
