Dear SCM Colleagues,

The USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project invites you to the fifth in a series of SCM Workforce Development webinars, ‘HR for SCM – Lets Consider HSCM Career Paths & Professionalization’.

Are you frustrated with skilled HSCM staff leaving your organization? Do you get frustrated with the lack of health supply chain management (HSCM) job opportunities? Would you like to improve the career pathways for HSCM in your country? Professionalization of the HSCM workforce is often mentioned with an overarching desire to improve competence of HSCM workers and have them engage in a meaningful career, developing and applying their SCM skills to improve the availability of medicines for patients. There are systematic things to consider and apply, that will improve the professionalization of your local and national HSCM workforce.

Wednesday the 2nd of October, 8am to 9am EST.

At the conclusion of this session participants should be able to:

• Explain what professionalization means in the context of HSCM and consider career pathways in this context
• Describe the roles of various SC Professional Associations
• Explore a proposed GHSC-PSM SCM Professionalization Framework
• Consider steps that can be taken to improve the professionalization of SCM cadres in your own country and organizational context

The webinar will be facilitated by Dr Andrew N Brown (GHSC-PSM) and Mr Michael Egharevba (GHSC-PSM).
