Description: Globalization is changing the national and international health landscapes. The health initiatives emerged in the last decades brought to light pressing challenges connected with health systems strengthening that require a new modus operandi to optimize investments into global health. There is an increasing understanding that complex health systems that consist of many sub-systems including procurement and supply management (PSM) systems and PSM planning will benefit from systems thinking approaches. The aim of this exploratory and retrospective study was to explore factors important for development of PSM plans for the Global Fund health programmes managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the context of complex health systems and to discuss whether the theoretical rationales of systems thinking can explain the study findings as determinants for successful development of PSM plans that are essential for timely start and implementation of GF health programmes.
