Procurement tips

Choosing between different products is just one part of the procurement process. Good procurement is based on a sound understanding of what is required. To help with this, IAPB has convened a number of expert groups to identify essential lists of equipment. Have you got what you need to run a good cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or low vision service? – look here for our Essential lists of equipment.

Do you fully know what a piece of equipment does? Do you know what the important features are and what optional features are worth paying extra for? Find out from our equipment videos. We have one on Direct and Indirect ophthalmoscopes–stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.

What do you need to know and do to get the best prices and get the equipment you want delivered to your hospital or clinic? Begin with the first steps in international procurement and stay tuned for more such videos and ‘how-to’ manuals from an experienced procurement manager.

Purchasing the product is only half the process. Here are some great videos and manuals from world-renowned teams in the proper care and maintenance of valuable equipment.
