Global Healthcare Supply Chains

The design and implementation of healthcare supply chains in the developing world still proves highly challenging. Inadequate supply chains lead to a reduction in coverage of local populations, and therefore reduce access to medication and treatment for people who need it most. HRG’s research examines global healthcare supply chains in terms of medicines and healthcare.

HRG studies the distribution of anti-malaria medication in Sub-Saharan Africa taking into consideration the issues of acceptability, availability and affordability. We look at the positive impact public-private partnerships (PPP) can have on the development of medicines for the developing world, and the challenges they face in distributing these medicines.

North Star Foundation is a PPP that have established HIV/AIDS wellness centres along the trucking corridor in Africa. This research examines the impact and strategy of the organisation, as it expands its area of reach across Africa.
