World Bank picks local medical supplier as study model

The World Bank has picked a Kenyan drugs and medical equipment supplier for a study on medical supply systems in Africa. Mission for Essential Drugs and Supplies (MEDS) will be showcased as a model on medical supply chains in Africa to provide lessons and opportunities for improvement.

This, according to the World Bank Group, will help improve supply chains and pass on the cost savings to end users. This was revealed during a tour of MEDS facilities in Nairobi by a team of World Bank Group officials led Dr Gandham Ramana, who noted that MEDS supply chain ranked as one of the most efficient models in Africa in medical supply.

 So far 35 counties have procured medicines and other pharmaceuticals from MEDS. MEDS Managing Director Paschal Manyuru said the faith-based institution will explore more partnerships with the World Bank in enhancing access to quality and affordable healthcare services.
