INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION - CONTINUED
  • Malawi is in the Southern part of Africa. Sharing
    international borders with Mozambique to the
    south, Zambia to the west and Tanzania to the
    north
  • Estimated population of about 15 million people

5
GOOD GOVERNANCE IN MEDICINES IMPLEMENTATION
  • Malawi with support from the WHO has completed
    phase I and Phase II of the Good Governance in
    Pharmaceuticals.
  • Now Malawi moving onto Phase III

6
Key achievements 20112012
  • Training of Good Governance in Medicines (GGM)
    team completed
  • Development of Good Governance in Medicines (GGM)
    Frame Work completed
  • The Framework now awaits launch end October 2013

7
REASONS FOR SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAMME
  • Technical as well as financial support has always
    been available from country and WHO Geneva
    offices.
  • The national GGM Team has been together for a
    long time.
  • Collaborations with local anti corruption
    agencies including the Police.

8
CHALLENGES
  • Inadequate budget lines for the operations of the
    programme.
  • Limited local pharmaceutical manufacturing base.
    Over reliance on imported medicines brings in its
    own problems in the procurement as well as other
    pharmaceutical systems.

9
CHALLENGES CONTINUED
  • Inadequate capacity at the Pharmacy, Medicines
    and Poisons Board to enforce legislation and
    regulations relating to control of medicines in
    Malawi.
  • Inadequate funding to the health sector which
    lead to consistent shortage of essential drugs
    and medical supplies at service delivery points.

10
LESSONS LEARNED
  • Good Governance infrastructure is achievable,
    what is required is commitment and patience.
  • Commitment should be by both GGM Teams and our
    Governments.
  • Effective coordination of the GGM programme
    requires a dedicated team of trained individuals
    and logistical support.

11
LESSONS LEARNED CONTINUED
  • To promote and ensure transparency and good
    governance practices in Malawi the GGM programme
    will be managed by the Drugs and Medical Supplies
    Technical Working Group (TWG) in the SWAp and
    also the National GGM Committee.

12
NEXT STEPS IN MALAWI GGM PROGRAMME
  • Follow the planning matrix which has been
    developed
  • Continue with campaigns and development of
    guidelines including conflict of interest
  • Build national capacity for good governance in
    medicines regulation and supply management systems

13
EXPECTATIONS FROM THE WHO
  • We expect country and Geneva WHO offices to
    continue guiding us, giving us the much needed
    support both technical and financial which will
    lead us into successful implementation of Phase
    III of the GGM.

14
CONCLUSION
  • The Government of Malawi understands the
    importance of Good Governance in pharmaceuticals
    and hence is committed to full implementation of
    the GGM with the aim of improving health services
    in the country
