Health Action International has teamed up with Amref Health Africa, the African Centre for Global Health and Social Transformation (ACHEST), Wemos and the Dutch Ministry for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation to form the Health Systems Advocacy (HSA) Partnership.
Throughout this five-year (2016–2020) programme, HSA Partners are working with civil society organisations in Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Tanzania and Malawi in advocating for strengthened health systems that enable people to realise their right to the highest attainable sexual and reproductive health.
Health Action International’s role in the Partnership draws upon our research and advocacy expertise. In collaboration with our in-country partners, HEPS Uganda, Medicines Transparency Alliance Zambia and Medicines Transparency Alliance Kenya, we are studying the price, availability and affordability of sexual and reproductive health commodities in facilities across Kenya, Uganda, Zambia and Tanzania. These commodities include contraceptives, antibiotics for maternal and neonatal sepsis and pneumonia, pre-natal vitamins, pain medicines, and surgical equipment. These findings form the basis of our advocacy work with our in-country partners.
