MedSource: Improving Access to Safe, Affordable, Quality-Assured Medical Products in Kenya
The World Health Organization estimates that one in 10 medical products in low- and middle-income countries is substandard or falsified. To make quality and safe medicines affordable to more Kenyans, MSH founded MedSource, a group purchasing organization that enables its members, such as pharmacies and hospitals, to purchase medical products from pre-qualified distributors and manufacturers at discount prices. By aggregating the purchasing power of a large group of members, MedSource lowers costs while ensuring safe, quality products. Members also receive business support and training.
Creating Diverse Coalitions for Powerful Collaboration
Improving health systems means looking at all the ways people get care—not only at public facilities. MSH engages critical partners outside the public sphere to develop the most effective, efficient service delivery models. We recognize the prominent role the private sector plays in providing health services around the world, and we seek to strengthen public-private interactions using a whole systems—and whole-of-society—approach to ensure effective, equitable, and affordable access to high-quality essential health services for everyone who needs them.
