MSH is currently working on two projects in El Salvador. The Supply Chain Management System Project (SCMS),is funded by the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief to help deliver an uninterrupted supply of high-quality, affordable products including: antiretroviral drugs; drugs to treat opportunistic infections such as tuberculosis; and drugs and supplies for palliative and home-based care, HIV rapid test kits, and laboratory equipment. The project focuses on improving forecasting (to determine what drugs are really needed), aggregating demand and negotiating lower prices, and bringing the delivery mechanism closer to the point of use through regional warehouses.
Under the Salud Mesoamérica Initiative, MSH is providing ongoing technical assistance to improve the quality of, access to, and use of health services at the primary and secondary levels of care for the poorest 20 percent of the population. This technical assistance focuses on expanding essential obstetric and neonatal care, newborn and child health, family planning services, assuring quality in those services, monitoring and use of health information system data for decision-making, and results-based financing models.
