Devex: ‘Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution’
Deb Derrick, president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
“…Current global health procurement practices are burdensome and require significant man-hours in every implementing country to gather data to compare product and pricing information. Additionally, the current process is subjected to delays, which can have devastating effects on a country’s efforts to mitigate disease burdens. The Global Fund’s e-marketplace will aim to address these issues — beginning with lifesaving supplies for the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, but with the ultimate goal of making the process available for a broad range of commodities to benefit procurement and supply chain systems across public health. … The Global Fund’s e-marketplace presents an innovative solution that takes advantage of new technologies to streamline these lifesaving activities” (1/22).
