The Journey of the Pill: Findings of the NCD Commodity Supply Chain Assessment in Ghana
Noncommunicable diseases kill 41 million people each year, representing 71% of all deaths globally. The Global NCD Action Plan sets a goal of “80% availability of the affordable basic technologies and essential medicines, including generics” by 2025 to treat NCDs. However, many people living with NCDs face barriers to accessing the proper medications, equipment to treat and manage their conditions.
Our partner PATH recently collaborated with the Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Service to analyze supply chain channels for NCD-related medicines and diagnostics, identify bottlenecks and recommend interventions to strengthen NCD supply security.
Read the full report to learn about the findings and associated recommended interventions to make the NCD supply chain more responsive, efficient and effective.
