Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Grant Award

ASCM is the recipient of a three-year grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Through this grant, ASCM will directly support the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s work to increase educational and economic opportunities for women and encourage healthier families and communities.

ASCM will help solve critical public health supply chain challenges, including weak distribution systems and a lack of reliable monitoring and data collection mechanisms. Additionally, we'll assist in the development and implementation of country-specific plans to elevate the maturity of local supply chain communities that directly impact supply chain reliability.

The goal of the grant project is to build self-reliant supply chain talent, increase frontier market supply chain maturity, improve distribution systems, and enable more reliable monitoring and data collection mechanisms. This project will leverage ASCM proven best practices to grow an effective, sustainable supply chain in these frontier markets.

Key outcomes include:

  • Improve the knowledge base and association operating models of the supply chain community in frontier markets.
  • Establish and continually improve the supply chain maturity model for frontier markets through community engagement.
  • Increase last-mile product availability in target market public health facilities.
We are honored to receive this grant and work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to improve public health supply chains in Africa, helping to perpetuate smart, sensible global health development.
