Medicines Transparency Alliance - Ghana. Working Together for Better Access to Medicines
(2016; 12 pages)

Abstract

The Medicines Transparency Alliance (MeTA) began as a pilot in Ghana in 2009.

The programme aimed to contribute to good governance, transparency and accountability across the medicines supply chain, through the engagement of all stakeholders with an interest in access to medicines. MeTA Ghana is a registered body with a constitution. Its highest decision-making body is a governing council, which is made up of 20 representatives of government, civil society and private sector agencies. The governing council oversees the work of an advocacy subgroup, a technical subgroup, and an administrative subgroup made up of members from government, the private sector, civil society and cooperating partners. The council, which meets quarterly, oversees the implementation of the work plan and monitors the performance of the national secretariat.

Ghana is one of seven countries to adopt MeTA. The programme is also active in Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Peru, the Philippines, Uganda and Zambia. It is currently funded by the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DFID).
