The Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Project, funded by the US Agency for International Development, helps countries promote access to safe, quality, and cost-effective pharmaceuticals and health commodities by using a system strengthening approach that engages stakeholders, builds and strengthens existing health systems, or establishes a new one, if necessary. SIAPS strengthens pharmaceutical governance by working with the Department of Health and all in-country stakeholders involved in managing the supply chain to define roles, responsibilities, and accountability as well as to identify the critical steps moving forward to implement positive changes in the system. SIAPS ensures the involvement of all partners during the whole process. The overall goal is to promote stewardship for DOH and enable continuous, sustained progress.

Strengthening the Supply Chain Governance Framework for Pharmaceuticals and Health Products in the Philippines – Technical Brief
Strengthening the Supply Chain Governance Framework for Pharmaceuticals and Health Products in the Philippines
The Department of Health (DOH) is ultimately responsible and accountable for ensuring that Filipinos have access to quality health services. An effective supply chain is essential for DOH to ensure that lifesaving health products are available, accessible, and effectively used for clients. Recently, the DOH has shown its commitment by creating the Supply Chain Management Unit (SCMU) in March 2016. SIAPS conducted a thorough desk review of previous assessments and DOH’s various internal SCM policies. SIAPS also helped coordinate meetings with various DOH offices to identify and validate current experiences in SCM and to obtain recommendations to strengthen SCM governance of DOH.
