La présente activité avait pour objectif d’apporter un soutien au Ministère de la Santé et de l’Hygiène publique (MSHP) pour la quantification des besoins en médicaments pour la santé reproductive, maternelle, néonatale et infantile (SRMNI). C’est ainsi que la Direction de la pharmacie et du médicament, à travers l’appui technique et financier de SIAPS, a organisé un atelier pour quantifier les besoins en ces produits. Grâce à la participation de tous les principaux intervenants, un plan d’approvisionnement a été élaboré dans le but d’établir les besoins prévisionnels pour la période s’échelonnant de 2017 à 2020. Les résultats de cet exercice de quantification seront utilisés dans la planification pour mobiliser et obtenir des ressources financières pour ladite période. Aux fins de cet exercice de quantification, la méthode basée sur la morbidité a été utilisée. La prévision des besoins a été faite pour l’ensemble du pays sur la base d’une liste des produits utilisés dans la prise en charge de la femme, du nouveau-né et de l’enfant.
