Pharmaceutical and Supply Chain Management

Ensuring Access to Quality Products and Medicines

Accessing health products, medicines, and related services—whether to avoid unintended pregnancy, prevent infection, or treat disease—should not be a risky endeavor. People should expect to receive safe and quality health products, dispensed correctly, at an affordable price.

For over 30 years, MSH has been a global leader in pharmaceutical and supply chain systems strengthening, supporting countries to work sustainably through good governance, resource efficiency, country leadership, and developing local technical expertise and self-sufficiency. 

We support countries in improving regulatory systems, enforcing compliance, optimizing financing, and developing robust systems to distribute quality-assured medicines and health products to providers and patients. Whether it is a pharmacist training program, software to monitor stock, or a system to report adverse events, we create state-of-the-art tools to manage medicines and provide quality pharmaceutical care across the health system.

Keeping Medicines Flowing in Ukraine during a War

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had devastating consequences for its citizens as well as core institutions in the health care sector, with hundreds of facilities decimated from bombing and other attacks.  

Management Sciences for Health’s (MSH) years-long partnership with the government to implement the USAID Safe, Affordable, and Effective Medicines for Ukrainians (SAFEMed) Activity laid the groundwork to help the country adapt swiftly to tackle these challenges.
