Smiles For Mothers, Supply Chain Capacity Building
In this project, Health Strat is mandated to strengthen and create efficiencies for sustainable supply chain and commodity management for uterotonics, at all levels of the existing supply chain, from national systems to last-mile distribution through capacity building and use of our digital solution – QualiPharm for commodity management, tracking, reporting and using data for decision making; forecasting and quantification for the prevention of post-partum hemorrhage (PPH) in 40 health facilities across 10 counties. Health Strat is also involved in policy change which will see introduction of Carbetocin, a heat stable drug for management of post-partum hemorrhage. This process involves advocacy at the national level with multiple stakeholders such as the drug regulatory authority and the Ministry of Health’s Health Products and Technologies Division. This project is being implemented in collaboration with Jhpiego, McKinsey and the Ministry of Health
