Rapport de quantification des produits de la santé reproductive, maternelle, néonatale, et infantile pour la période de janvier 2016 à décembre 2020

L’accès à des médicaments appropriés est vital pour parvenir aux objectifs mondiaux en matière de santé, en particulier les produits destinés pour la santé de la femme et de l’enfant. Un élément majeur de l’accès est de garantir la disponibilité des produits. Pour cela, la quantification des besoins est indispensable. La présente activité a apporté 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 (DPM), à travers l’appui technique et financier de SIAPS, a organisé un atelier de quantification des besoins de ces produits. Avec la participation de tous les principaux intervenants dans le but de produire des besoins prévisionnels, un plan d’approvisionnement pour la période de 2016 à 2020 était préparé.

Developing a Central Medical Store Strategic Plan: 10 Steps for Global Health Professionals

Developing a CMS strategic plan can help align pharmaceutical supply chain objectives with overall public-sector health supply chain strategies. It can help ensure that health commodities are readily available to health facilities through an uninterrupted supply chain; minimize waste and losses; improve business and financial growth; and respond to changes in the supply chain, such as new technologies and emerging markets. In addition, advocating for and encouraging stakeholders to assess the medicine supply chain system can increase interest in generating additional technical, financial, and material resources for health care. Supply chain interventions can also contribute to improving rational medicine use and strengthening pharmaceutical regulation.

Technical Approach to Developing a Strategic Plan to Strengthen the Central Medical Store: The Case of Pharmacie Populaire du Mali

This document describes the techniques and experiences of and lessons learned from developing a strategic plan for the Pharmacie Populaire du Mali (PPM). Technical assistance providers, managers of pharmaceutical supply chain organizations, and consultants can adapt this information to suit local contexts and needs and apply it to their own public health pharmaceutical supply chain strategic plans.

SIAPS employed a systematic and structured approach to support PPM in developing its first strategic plan, including defining the scope and refining the task of developing a strategic plan through consultation with key stakeholders; conducting a national supply chain situational analysis that included country context–political, environmental, social, legislative, economic, and ethical factors–identifying gaps between the organization’s mission and vision and the expectations of clients and stakeholders; prioritizing and developing strategic objectives; and action planning and budgeting.

Continuous Results Monitoring and Support System Tracks Post-Ebola Recovery in Sierra Leone

The catastrophic Ebola epidemic that began in 2014 aggravated Sierra Leone’s already weak pharmaceutical supply system. The country’s pharmaceutical storage, handling, distribution, and waste disposal programs were in dire need of improvement. A “push system” of standardized medicine deliveries without reliable use data compromised inventory control and accurate forecasting, leading to frequent stock-outs or overstocks. Cost recovery also functioned poorly, potentially impacting future health care resources.

The Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program, implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), received two years of funding in September 2015 from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide technical assistance for rebuilding and strengthening the post-Ebola pharmaceuti-cal supply chain management system in Sierra Leone. SIAPS helped the country institute a continuous results monitoring and support system (CRMS) to assess baseline challenges in pharmaceutical management and regularly track and support improvement in key areas. The CRMS uses a series of indicators to track and monitor factors that influence medicine availability and disease case management. Developed in Ethiopia in 2009 to bolster malaria treatment, CRMS has proven valuable in tracking performance trends so that partners and stakeholders can come together to address service gaps.

Strengthening Post-Ebola Recovery and Resiliency in Four Countries

A strong pharmaceutical management system is critical for responding to and preventing public health emergencies. The US Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program, implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), is helping four countries affected by Ebola—Sierra Leone, Guinea, Mali, and Benin—recover and rebuild essential drug management and delivery services and to increase their capacity and sustainability. The two-year project began in 2015.

Report on Strengthening the Warehouse Management System for the Pharmacie Populaire du Mali

PPM is a strategic health commodities supply chain entity for the government of Mali. It operates under a performance contract with the government that is renewable every three years. The performance contract expects PPM to offer public health facilities and programs the best possible service level in terms of product availability and quality service.

Since its inception, PPM has strived to offer the best possible supply chain services, particularly procurement and distribution of health commodities, to its clients. However, while providing services, PPM has experienced a number of challenges, such as a low service level for essential health commodities, inadequate funding, and inadequate HR capacity in terms of both numbers and skills.

With an understanding of the challenges and in response to various assessments, reviews, and recommendations from stakeholders, PPM asked for technical assistance from the USAID- funded SIAPS Program to guide the best strategies to improve and strengthen PPM’s supply chain and SOPs. In response, SIAPS conducted an in-depth analysis of the current PPM operations and identified issues to be addressed, with a focus on the entire PPM supply chain system rather than just one or two areas of intervention. Among the areas assessed was the PPM MIS.
