Dear Friend of Management Sciences for Health,

The Supply Chain Management System's 
 dedicated staff in Haiti is distributing kits of medicines and other medical 
supplies from existing stock in the project warehouse to 14 hospitals in 
Port-au-Prince.   The staff had helped treat the wounded immediately after the 
earthquake. SCMS staff in Haiti and around the globe are determining other ways 
to contribute to the relief effort.

SCMS is a USAID-funded project that manages warehousing and distribution of 
 HIV & AIDS commodities in the country. SCMS is led by the Partnership for 
Supply  Chain Management-a nonprofit organization with 17 international 
partners established by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and John Snow, Inc.

"The courage and peace of mind of the SCMS Haiti team - in the face of personal 
 losses and unimaginable devastation- is truly inspiring. SCMS worldwide is 
mobilized to provide all possible support to the Haitian relief effort," says 
Dr. Jonathan  Quick, President and CEO of MSH.

For over thirty years, MSH has been working in Haiti to help itimprove the 
health of the Haitian people from the community level up to the Ministry of 
Health. In  addition to SCMS, MSH has two other projects in Haiti, the SDSH 
 (Santé pour le Développement et la Stabilité d'Haïti Project-Pwojé Djanm) and 
the Leadership, Management, and Sustainability Program
