Kenya

Currently, under the USAID-funded Medicines, Technologies, and Pharmaceutical Services (MTaPS) Program, MSH is helping to improve infection prevention and control capacity, optimize the use of antimicrobial medicines, and strengthen multisectoral coordination for containing antimicrobial resistance in Kenya. In line with these activities, MTaPS is supporting the country in its efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic by implementing a national strategy in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and county governments. 

In 2018, MSH launched MedSource, a group purchasing organization dedicated to improving the availability and affordability of quality medicines and related supplies for the people of Kenya. The first organization of its kind in Kenya, MedSource helps its members—pharmacies, hospitals, clinical laboratories, and other health care providers—realize savings and efficiencies by aggregating purchasing volume and using that leverage to negotiate discounts with manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and other vendors.
