About SCMS
For people with HIV/AIDS in developing countries, cost-effective, reliable, secure and sustainable supply chains can save millions of lives. For more than six years, the Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) has been saving lives through stronger supply chains.

SCMS is managed by the Partnership for Supply Chain Management, which also holds the contract for the Global Fund's Pooled Procurement Mechanism (PPM), previously known as Voluntary Pooled Procurement (VPP).

Health Officials in Zambia Get Trained on New eLMIS

The eLMIS is a new software that will transform Zambia’s health service and enhance the management of health commodities by transitioning from a paper-based system of data management to an electronic format. SCMS and the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT are among the partners supporting this initiative.
