Accessibility & Privacy

Thank you for visiting This is a contractor-operated website funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) under the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management contract.

This website was developed for interactive public use and is in the public domain; it is not an official U.S. government website, and therefore, does not necessarily state or reflect the views or opinions of the U.S. government or USAID.

Any data collected, maintained, or stored within this website is owned and controlled by the contractor, Chemonics International, hereby referred to as Chemonics, and not USAID. Individuals seeking USAID information should visit the agency's official government website at


The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) website is managed by the GHSC-PSM project through the GHSC-PSM contract, implemented by Chemonics International. Every effort is made to ensure accessibility for content generated under the GHSC-PSM contract in line with USAID’s own accessibility policy.

As a community site, the GHSC-PSM implementing partners encourage external contributors to make their content equally accessible for those with disabilities. However, we are unable to guarantee accessibility for content produced by third parties. Please contact the content author or organization if content is not accessible. If you are unable to locate this information, please contact us and we will make every effort to put you in contact with the content author. To learn more about Section 508 Compliance, please click here.

For the sake of timeliness, we may occasionally post resources immediately while we work to create an equivalent accessible version. In most cases, an accessible version will be made available within 10 business days of original posting. Please contact us directly at if you find GHSC-PSM-generated content to be inaccessible and indicate the page URL and problem you found. We will make every effort to resolve the issue within 10 business days.
