About the distribution of Free Health Care Initiative supplies

Ensuring free drugs are available in primary healthcare facilities is critical to encouraging health seeking behaviour. The Free Health Care Initiative (FHCI) in Sierra Leone promises free health services (preventative and curative) to all children under 5, pregnant and lactating women and Ebola survivors. DFID has supported the FHCI in Sierra Leone since its inception in 2010 through support to the procurement and distribution of supplies for the FHCI.

DFID is therefore contracting International Procurement Agency (IPA), as its contracted Procurement Agent (PA) in Sierra Leone, to assist the Ministry of Health to bridge the gap in essential commodities and to aid in delivering this service. This has been due to the evident failures of previously supported National Pharmaceutical Procurement Unit (NPPU), which was managed by original implementer. This implementing partner also failed to provide adequate auditable documentation, and due to these facts DFID has now sourced a pre-established and proven private contractor to provide this service.

Distribution of Q1 emergency Pharmaceuticals and Drugs to Health Facilities in 10 States in South Sudan is now complete

Current Status of the Procurement and Distribution Process of Q1 emergency Pharmaceuticals and Drugs to Health Facilities in 10 States in South Sudan

Distribution of Q1 emergency Pharmaceuticals and Drugs to Health Facilities in 10 States (Central Equatoria, Eastern Equatoria, Western Equatoria, Jonglei, Lakes, Northern Bahr El Ghazal, Unity,  Upper Nile, Warrap, and Western Bahr El Ghazal) is now complete.

Delivery and Distribution Status Q1

Distribution of Q1 emergency Pharmaceuticals and Drugs to Health Facilities in 10 States (Central Equatoria, Eastern Equatoria, Western Equatoria, Jonglei, Lakes, Northern Bahr El Ghazal, Unity, Upper Nile, Warrap, and Western Bahr El Ghazal) is now complete.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the insecurities in South Sudan, there has been a delay in shipping Q2 pharmaceuticals and drugs shipments as the shipping lines are hesitant in shipping goods destined to South Sudan. Therefore, all Q2 shipments are destined to Kampala with onward transport once the borders to South Sudan open up and transport route to Juba is safe to travel. Q2 Pharmaceuticals and Medical Consumables coming into the country have be diverted to an alternate warehouse located in Kampala until the situation in SS is normalized. Further update information will be made available in the coming days.
