Closing the medicines supply gap in the African region: The East African perspective

23 May 2024

The expanding population in East Africa is putting immense pressure on the health sectors of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda, both financially and organizationally. Over 90% of drugs in the region are imported, leading to frequent stock-outs of essential medications and medical supplies, exacerbating health issues. Diagnostic equipment is often out of use due to lack of repair, further straining the healthcare system.
