MASTER OF SCIENCE IN GLOBAL HEALTH PROCUREMENT AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT (IN ENGLISH AND FRENCH)

UNITAR

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.
