2017 Supplier Summit

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program (GHSC) hosted more than 240 commodity suppliers, program staff, and partners at a three-day Supplier Summit held in Dubai Feb. 21-23, 2017. 

The Summit introduced manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors of global health commodities to GHSC's various health areas and USAID programs, along with the funding mechanisms that support them. Three GHSC projects were highlighted: Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM), Quality Assurance (GHSC-QA), and Rapid Test Kits (GHSC-RTK).

As part of our commitment to fair and open competition, the Summit covered a broad range of information detailed in five plenary and 36 breakout sessions. The session materials are available below.
