Technical Brief: Transforming Pharmaceutical Services in Ethiopia through Auditable Pharmaceutical Transactions and Services

MSH has implemented pharmaceutical management projects in Ethiopia since 2005, through the Rational Pharmaceutical Management Plus Project and the Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems (SPS) Program and most recently the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program. The SIAPS Program (2011 to 2016) aims to reduce morbidity and mortality, primarily for HIV and AIDS, malaria, and priority conditions in MNCH.

One of the most successful SIAPS initiatives in Ethiopia is implementation of Auditable Pharmaceuticals Transactions and Services (APTS), a package of interventions that addresses accountability and transparency; access to information for decision making; efficient use of medicines budgets and human resources; and quality of pharmacy services—all of which affect the performance of hospitals in the public sector.
