ResultsinHealth has an excellent track record of strengthening supply chains for medicines and other health commodities
ResultsinHealth is experienced in evaluating and advising on risks in procurement and supply management at all levels of supply chains. Based on our advice, donor agencies and governments make evidence-based decisions on spending for medicines and other health products and controlling risks in supply chains.
An example of our work
ResultsinHealth’s 13 years of collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the ‘Global Fund’)
In late 2002, ResultsinHealth was approached by PricewaterhouseCoopers to provide services to the Global Fund, a new international agency established under auspices of the United Nations. ResultsinHealth was asked to provide oversight services related to the procurement and supply management of medicines, diagnostics, medical supplies and other health products. Services were needed in all countries where PricewaterhouseCoopers was assigned to be the Local Fund Agent for the Global Fund.
ResultsinHealth's added value
ResultsinHealth's business-style approach, combined with an in-depth understanding of the WHO approach to strengthen access to essential medicines, proved to be an excellent fit for this new organisation, the Global Fund. As a consequence, ResultsinHealth was also asked to draft the Global Fund’s procurement and supply management policy and has participated in a variety of discussions on supply-chain challenges in Global Fund grants over the last 13 years.
The tri-party collaboration has been successful to date, and now includes over 70 countries where Global Fund grants are being implemented. ResultsinHealth has responded to the Global Fund’s needs with a flexible team of approximately 30 procurement and supply-management experts based around the world. ResultsinHealth trains and coaches these experts, and ensures that PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Global Fund obtain the best possible value for service.
