Abstract

The US Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded program, Securing Ugandans’ Right to Essential Medicines (SURE) was established in 2009 to assist the government of Uganda and the Ministry of Health (MoH) strengthen the national pharmaceutical supply system and ensure that Uganda’s population has access to good quality essential medicines and health supplies (EMHS).

The five-year cooperative agreement was awarded to Management Sciences for Health in collaboration with the Euro Health Group, Imperial Health Sciences, Makerere University, and the Infectious Diseases Institute.

Our goal was that by program’s end, Uganda’s supply chain management capacity would have been built from the bottom to the top, its parallel supply systems harmonized, and innovative systems established at all levels to better use limited resources. In addition, we strived to establish a supply chain system with the necessary tools, approaches, skills, and coordinating mechanisms to serve all of Uganda’s health care levels and provide a foundation on which the Ugandan government could expand.
