CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- BSMA announced at the 15th Annual Conference on June 22-23 in Foster City, CA, its commitment to help build the supply chain of healthcare in the continent of Africa. It will expand its global community by organizing the inaugural BSMA Conference in Kigali, Rwanda, on October 31 and November 31, 2022, at the Kigali Convention Center. The Ministry of Health of Rwanda will be the host for the Conference. Rwanda is the region of Africa, including Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which will serve as the nexus for the first International Conference in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, and be the beachhead for BSMA’s mission in Africa. A strategic intent of the Conference is to create a collaborative community of the five major regions of Africa, East, West, North, South and Central to sustain an ongoing initiative to build the supply chain and educate professionals in the healthcare industry. BSMA will serve as the platform for collaboration.

Devendra Mishra, the Executive Director of BSMA observed, “The Continent of Africa with 1.3 billion people will witness the greatest advancement in healthcare whereby the wellbeing and economy of its nations will be significantly enhanced in the 21st century. The Bio Supply Management Alliance (BSMA), a global community of supply chain professionals in Life Sciences based out of San Francisco (USA), Europe (Brussels) and Asia (New Delhi), will launch an effort to build the supply chain backbone for a self-sufficient healthcare system for the continent of Africa. Founded 15 years ago, BSMA’s mission has been to accelerate affordability and accessibility of scientific and technological advancements by fostering collaboration among the stakeholders of the industry to include the government, world health organizations, public and private enterprise, academia, research organizations, foundations and NGOs.”
