Celebrating six years of strengthening pharmaceutical systems in Uganda
How do strong pharmaceutical systems work to combat disease, boost health outcomes, and improve the quality of health services?
From 2014 to 2020, the USAID-funded and MSH-led Uganda Health Supply Chain (UHSC) project has worked to improve the health status of the Ugandan population by increasing the availability, affordability, accessibility, and appropriate use of quality essential medicines and health supplies.
Working directly with the Uganda Ministry of Health's pharmacy department, technical programs, district-level health managers, and private and public care facilities in 89 districts, UHSC has partnered with Uganda's National Medical Store, Joint Medical Store, National Drug Authorities, and other partners—including the Global Fund, UNICEF, and UNFPA—to transform Ugandan pharmaceutical systems and practices.
Join us for a virtual celebration of the project’s achievements and a panel discussion on the innovative approaches used to strengthen Uganda’s health system.
