Master Of Science In Global Health Procurement And Supply Chain Management

Over the last ten years, there have been massive changes in the field of public health. The funding levels available for various diseases have also increased. The net result has been the emergence of a much greater need for specific skill sets in areas such as Global Health, Procurement and Supply Chain Management (PSM), Leadership Management, and many other spheres, which are critical to operating effectively from a global perspective. Healthcare programs typically spend between 40 – 50% of the overall budget on public health commodities. Therefore, efficient management of the health commodities that are being distributed is of paramount importance.

There is limited availability (largely due to affordability) for professional skill development programs which address the needs of the public sector. Therefore, Empower School of Health and UNITAR provide a strong link between Public Health, Healthcare Management, and Procurement and Supply Management (PSM), addressing all the needed skill sets whilst still being affordable for low-income countries.

UNITAR and Empower’s Master of Science in Global Health Procurement and Supply Chain Management is being offered to students in 2 ways:

1. 24-month online programme – to all students who fulfill the required criteria

2. 12-month online programme – to students who have completed the Post Graduate Diploma in Global Health Procurement and Supply Chain Management from Empower School of Health.

The course prepares the participants for the world of procurement and supply chain of healthcare products. Students get growth opportunities, internships in Ministries of Health, UN agencies, donors' programs and international NGOs.
