USAID Concludes $17M Pharma Project




The US Agency for International Development (USAID), Management Sciences for Health (MSH), and the Ministry of Health announced the completion of the USAID’s System for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services Activity.

The 17.6 million dollars project was implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) with funding from President’s Malaria Initiative, and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

Eight thousand professionals were trained in the past five years and 77 health facilities across the country were supported in implementing new pharmaceutical practices. More than 1,000 health facilities were also supported in providing antiretroviral therapies, which would generate data for use in future health system decisions.

The project was intended to strengthen pharmaceutical management and support the development of treatment guidelines and health facility standards. 208 health facilities established electronic dispensing tools, and 604 public and private hospitals and health facilities now have drug and therapeutic committees.
