Health Commodities and Services
The Health Commodities and Services (HCSM) Program works to strengthen systems that deliver health care commodities and services focusing on key public health priorities especially HIV/AIDS, malaria, and reproductive health in Kenya.
The program was awarded by USAID/Kenya as an Associate Award under the Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems (SPS) Leader with Associates Cooperative Agreement and works with regional and national implementing partners that include government ministries, non-governmental, faith-based and community organizations to contribute to achieving public health priorities.
HCSM will build on previous successes under the SPS Program and will expand its scope beyond pharmaceutical management to support availability of high quality essential medicines and health commodities and related services. The project has three key result areas:
- Commodity Support – Strengthened commodity management for effective service provision
- Pharmaceutical Policy and Services – Improved pharmaceutical policy and service delivery for effective provision of health care to clients
- Laboratory and service delivery – Strengthened laboratory system and service delivery
