The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) successfully procures and distributes government, Global Fund, and other donor-funded commodities. Prices obtained by KEMSA are competitive compared to prices obtained by the Global Fund’s Pooled Procurement Mechanism (PPM), stock-outs of health commodities occur rarely, if ever, commodities are delivered in a timely fashion, and inventory is properly managed at all stages of the supply chain.
The Global Fund has agreed to accept in-kind payment in lieu of cash for $27.4 million in recoveries owed by Ghana. The in-kind payment consists of reforms that Ghana must implement in order for the country deliver its Supply Chain Master Plan. This is the first time that the Fund has agreed to such an arrangement.
