The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) is the global leader in supply chain organizational transformation, innovation, and leadership. As the largest nonprofit association for supply chain, ASCM is an unbiased partner, connecting companies around the world to the newest thought leadership on all aspects of supply chain. ASCM is built on a foundation of APICS certification and training spanning 60 years. Now, ASCM is driving innovation in the industry with new products, services, and partnerships that enable companies to further optimize their supply chains, secure their competitive advantage, and positively influence their bottom lines.
Through a three-year grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ASCM Foundation is solving critical public health supply chain challenges, including improving weak distribution systems, implementing reliable monitoring and data-collection mechanisms, and elevating the maturity of local supply chain communities. The goal of this initiative is to create self-reliant supply chain talent, increase frontier market supply chain maturity, improve distribution systems, and enable consistent monitoring.
In addition, we have created a technical services plan to support The Global Fund’s supply chain organizational strength-building activities. The strategy focuses on heightening the capabilities of leaders, professionals, and the public health workforce to maximize proven programs in learning, development, and organizational transformation.
