EVALUATING THE SUPPLY CHAIN PERFORMANCE OF THE USAID GLOBAL HEALTH SUPPLY CHAIN PROGRAM: A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS

Olatunji Akinyeye

Abstract


This study assesses the supply chain performance of the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program - Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM). Using a descriptive quantitative research approach, the study explores the relationship between overall program supply chain performance and operational drivers such as effectiveness, supply chain visibility, quality control, and cost. Key performance indicators, including on-time delivery, order accuracy, quality control, cost reduction, and lead times, are utilized to measure performance. The research relies on secondary data from the USAID GHSC-PSM Health Commodity Delivery dataset.
