SIAPS Guinea End of Project Report

The goals of USAID Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program in Guinea were to strengthen governance in the pharmaceutical sector, enhance capacity for pharmaceutical management and services, make pharmaceutical management information systems available at all levels, improve pharmaceutical services to achieve desired health outcomes, and ultimately save lives and protect the public’s health by improving access to and use of medicines of assured quality.

While activities primarily focused on malaria, SIAPS broadened its scope of work to aid in managing the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and expand the logistics management information system to other key disease programs.

SIAPS’ technical assistance to the Ministry of Health aimed to achieve coordinated and sustainable improvements in the critical components of the pharmaceutical system, make it more responsive and resilient, and enhance its performance to achieve better health outcomes.
