Dr. SD Gupta, President, The IIHMR University, Jaipur mentions, "Recent advances in science and medicines to achieve universal health coverage through public/donor funding for vast national and global health needs, the advent of innovative information technologies, and greater focus on building strong health systems have made it imperative to focus on various aspects of procurement and supply chain management in healthcare. The supply chain management assessment carried out by the USAID/Deliver Project indicates a major need to strengthen human resource capacity to ensure effective supply chain management.  There is a significant shortage of staff responsible for commodity management, especially pharmacists.  There is no formal logistics training being provided for existing supply chain management personnel.  In order to have efficient and skilled human resources needed to carry out supply chain management functions, there is a need to create a logistics management unit at the state level to coordinate all supply chain functions and activities." 

Dr. Gupta also adds, "Today Supply chain accounts for nearly 25 percent of pharmaceutical and health product costs and more than 40 percent of medical-device costs. The annual spending is so vast that its accounts to about $230 billion on pharmaceuticals and $122 billion on devices.Supply-chain security breaches have been increasing by an average of more than 33 % every year, rising not only in emerging markets such as China, India, and Brazil but also in the developed world. Hence, Better supply-chain processes are central to increasing patient safety."

The programme curriculum has been innovated and is integrated which aims to enable students to understand, comprehend concepts, principles and develop managerial capacities on Management of Health products for public health programmes, Policy and Economic Issues including legal framework, financing and sustainability PSSCMS, Managing National & International projects/programmes related to procurement & supply chain management of Health products supported by GoI & other donors like World Bank, GFATM, USAID, UNICEF, UNDP, UNFPA, DFID, BMGF etc.
