Procurement and Supply Management (PSM) Tools

As part of GDF's technical assistance facilitation, providing key information is an important aspect of building countries' capacity in Procurement and Supply Management (PSM). This page is designed to provide NTP managers, Central Medical Store staff, and TGF Principal Recipients with a quick reference to strategic information on all aspects of the drug management cycle in order to make informed decisions related to anti-TB commodities. Moreover, as a large number of GDF clients are Global Fund recipients, the information below aims to help in the development of PSM plans.
