Register to join us

Equitable and timely access to quality pharmaceutical products is indispensable for maximizing health outcomes. Access to related services that promote appropriate and cost-effective use of these products is just as critical. Many of the challenges we face in supporting countries to ensure a population’s access to and appropriate use of medicines and services, particularly in the context of universal health coverage and the health-related SDGs, require pharmaceutical systems strengthening approaches. Better understanding of how to strengthen national pharmaceutical systems will help make supply chains more efficient and responsive, improving the availability of the quality medicines and contributing to improved health outcomes. The skills workshop will session will:
  • Discuss a systematic approach to pharmaceutical systems strengthening and its importance to health supply chains
  • Examine selected pharmaceutical systems strengthening tools and consider how their application can help make supply chains more efficient and responsive

The workshop will be facilitated by Andrew Brown, PhD, Senior Principal Technical Advisor—Governance & Capacity Development, and Tamara Hafner, PhD, Principal Technical Advisor—Research, both of the USAID MTaPS Program.
