Due to their fragile health systems, Burkina Faso and Cameroon face issues around poor drug supply chain management, falsified and out-of-date medicines in circulation, poor governance and lack of pharmaceutical transparency.

Supported by L’Initiative to the tune of €600,000, the project OCoPP led by the Centre Humanitaire des Métiers de la Pharmacie aimed at improving the efficiency of supply channels for medicines essential to treat the three diseases in health posts, health centers and hospitals. It also aimed at ameliorating the overall medicine governance in the two countries using a data collection system that provides alerts and shares community information.

This project was carried out from the beginning of 2020 to the end of 2022.

It managed to achieve its objectives in terms of training, developing platforms and setting up a centralized platform for drug monitoring, despite delays and challenges.
