Pooled procurement

Pooled procurement is the name for the purchase of products done by one procurement office on behalf of a group of clients (in the health supply chain, these can be health facilities, or countries). Members of the group agree to purchase certain medicines exclusively through the group.

Post-marketing surveillance

Post-marketing (or post-market) surveillance refers to the operations that monitor the safety of a medicine or medical product after its release on the market. Post-market surveillance is an important part of pharmacovigilance, and widens the control study of the safety of a medicine from a limited number of clinical trial participants to the general population.


PPM is an acronym for Pooled Procurement Mechanism (formerly known as VPP), a short-term strategy developed by the Global Fund aimed at ensuring a cost effective and efficient procurement of core health commodities.
