An estimated 39% of Global Fund grants has been used on procurement of pharmaceuticals and other health products. The Global Fund’s role in procurement and supply management is primarily focused on policy approach and assistance to countries with policy requirements when procuring products with Global Fund resources for the prevention, the treatment and care of HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Although the Global Fund is not engaged in direct procurement activities, which are managed and conducted under the full responsibility of grant recipients, it provides the following mechanisms to promote safe and cost-effective procurement of health products:
Procurement and Supply Management (PSM) Plan: The objective of the PSM plan for health products is to outline how the PR will adhere to the Global Fund’s procurement and supply management policies.
Quality Assurance Policies: The Global Fund's Quality Assurance Policy for Pharmaceutical Products (amended and restated on 14 December 2010) and Quality Assurance Policy for Diagnostics Products (issued on 14 December 2010) defines the requirements which must be met for finished pharmaceutical products (FPP) and diagnostic products purchased with Global Fund resources.
Price and Quality Reporting (PQR) database (formerly PRM) offers information on procurement of selected health products, including prices and results of quality control testing.
Procurement Support Services (VPP, CBS/SCMA): Voluntary Pooled Procurement and capacity building services / Supply Chain Management Assistance programs for Principal Recipients are being established since January 2009.
This section provides information, guides and template forms related to procurement and supply management of health products funded with the Global Fund resources. In addition, updates and relevant information could be also found in the Information for Suppliers page.
