FEATURED STORY: Health officials in Zambia get trained on new eLMIS


In late April, health workers gathered in Livingstone, Zambia, for a two-week training on the new electronic Logistics Management Information System (eLMIS), in preparation for its deployment in health facilities nationwide. 

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. Access the story

SUPPLY LINES - SCMS NEWSLETTER


In the The March 2014 Issue,

big news for our clients! PFSCM’s quality management system at our office in Arlington, Virginia, received  ISO 9001:2008 certification from UL DQS, one of the leading ISO certification bodies for management systems in the world.


The first public health consortium organization to achieve ISO 9001:2008?

Many local and international companies across multiple sectors have achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification; however research by our team suggests that PFSCM may be unique in being listed as the only consortium of individual private sector companies and NGOs.
