SIAPS Program in DRC Hosts MSH Vice President

MSH Vice President of the Center for Pharmaceutical Management (CPM), Douglas Keene, traveled to DRC last month to meet with SIAPS Country Project Director Philippe Tshiteta and important stakeholders in the country’s health sector. Mr. Keene and Mr. Tshiteta held a consultation with the Country Representative of the World Health Organization, Dr. Joseph Cabore. Dr.Cabore was enthusiastic in his support of USAID-funded SIAPS’s work in DRC, saying that the issue of pharmaceutical governance through centralizing purchasing and decentralizing distribution was a key focus area for the government and its partners.
CPM Vice President Douglas Keene also met with officials from USAID and DRC’s Ministry of Public Health to discuss SIAPS’s continued systems-strengthening support of the country’s pharmaceutical sector.
