10 months ago we opened our new warehouse in Juba, South Sudan. We’ve achieved a lot since then and will continue our work on supply chain support for Health Pooled Fund!

Health Pooled Fund 2
Under the HPF Phase II (HPF2), IPA supports the Government of the Republic of South Sudan with the essential components of the supply chain for pharmaceuticals and medical consumables. CHDs are supported in strengthening the supply chain management and utilization of quality pharmaceuticals and medical products in the county. Presently, most of the pharmaceuticals are delivered in a “push” system in the form of pre-packed kits. This will move this to a “pull” system according to the needs of the facilities, while still aligning to the MOH Essential Drugs list. This will require coherent strategies that will oversee quantification, procuring, financing, storage and distribution of drugs and supplies. It will mean using standard requisition and reporting forms, stock cards and monitoring the utilization of drugs at facilities.
