Improving Market Partnerships and Access to Commodities Together (IMPACT)
Through a total market approach, the USAID-funded IMPACT program is building Madagascar’s capacity to deliver quality health products to the Malagasy people. We are working with the government to strengthen its supply chain and increase cost efficiency while enabling the health system to harness private-sector contributions, including those from retail pharmaceutical outlets.
Started in October 2018 and led by Population Services International (PSI) with MSH, PATH, Banyan Global, and the Telma Foundation as partners, IMPACT works with the USAID-funded, MSH-led ACCESS program to strengthen the health system and achieve sustainable health impacts. This five-year (2018–2023) cooperative agreement will increase access to and use of effective health products by:
- Enhancing coordination among the public, nonprofit, and commercial sectors for reliable supply and distribution of quality health products
- Strengthening the capacity of the government of Madagascar to sustainably provide quality health products to the Malagasy people
- Expanding engagement of the commercial health sector to serve new health markets according to health needs and consumer demand
- Improving sustainability of social marketing to deliver affordable, accessible health products to the Malagasy population
- Increasing demand for and use of health products among the Malagasy people, including piloting an accredited drug sellers initiative
