About SCMS
For people with HIV/AIDS in developing countries, cost-effective, reliable, secure and sustainable supply chains can save millions of lives. For more than six years, the Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) has been saving lives through stronger supply chains.

SCMS is managed by the Partnership for Supply Chain Management, which also holds the contract for the Global Fund's Pooled Procurement Mechanism (PPM), previously known as Voluntary Pooled Procurement (VPP).

SCMS contributes to policy brief on transitioning to new HIV/AIDS pediatric regimens: This Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) and WHO policy brief advises implementers that it will be increasingly difficult to procure specific ARVs on their own as of the end of 2014. If countries require these specific ARVs it is recommended they go through the Pediatric ARV Procurement Working Group to pool their orders to achieve sufficient order batch sizes.
