In Rwanda (my country of origin) and in most developing countries, the lack of health procurement and supply chain management infrastructure and professionals combined with the luck of experts and leaders in health procurement and supply chains management of pharmaceutical products and commodities in areas such as HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, Covid-19 is a crucial issue for the health of populations.
