What is the purpose of the USAID-funded Medicines, Technologies, and Pharmaceuticals Services (MTaPS) program, and what will the program accomplish?

MTaPS recently published a collection of brief publications that provide information on the program’s objectives and planned activities. The 13 publications, available in both English and French, which can be found here, describe the global context of implementation, the technical expertise provided by MTaPS, and our expected outcomes.

The brief publications include:

  • How MTaPS will support Global Health Security Agenda goals in infection prevention and control (IPC) and antimicrobial stewardship (AMS), including mobilizing stakeholders and building coalitions around IPC and AMS activities and building the capacity of journalists for informed reporting on these issues. 

  • The program’s objectives to support the global strategy on HIV and AIDS, including activities to support countries in rolling out new treatment guidelines, strengthening the supply chain at the national and subnational levels, and supporting national pharmaceutical health information systems. 

  • MTaPS’ objectives to help end the TB epidemic by improving access to high-quality, patient-centered TB services, preventing TB transmission and disease progression, and accelerating research and innovation.
