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.

Coordinated Quantification of Health Commodities Helps Increase Availability of Medicines in Swaziland

Swaziland, working to combat two concurrent epidemics of HIV and tuberculosis (TB), has recently intensified nationwide HIV testing and TB case finding campaigns. However, these efforts have been hampered by routine stock-outs of key TB, laboratory, HIV and AIDS, and other health commodities. In December 2011, 50% of tracer products were stocked out at the central level, while 23% of tracer products were stocked out at health facility warehouses. The challenge of maintaining a consistent supply of commodities threatens not only current efforts to help curb the HIV and TB epidemics, but may also erode the progress made to date toward advancing prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services. The rapid scale-up of these programs as well as fiscal challenges in the health sector, have exposed weaknesses related to procurement and supply chain systems.
