Grants Management

Medical Access has the technical expertise, leadership structures, knowledge & skills, corporate governance systems, and strong accounting and financial systems to manage grant funds, reporting and program implementation at global standards.

Below are some of the grants that Medical Access has managed over the years:

  • SCM Strategy Assessment and Expert Services to the Global Fund. In 2016, Medical Access provided expert services for the Global Fund to assess the adequacy and effectiveness of in-country supply chain management processes in Pakistan, Nigeria, Indonesia and Cambodia, among others.

  • The Diflucan® Partnership Program. Through the Diflucan® Partnership Program (DPP), Pfizer’s anti-fungal medicine Diflucan® (Fluconazole) was made available free of charge for the treatment of Cryptococcal Meningitis and Esophageal Candidiasis, which are opportunistic infections associated with HIV/AIDS, to government and non-governmental organizations in developing countries. Patients in Uganda are beneficiaries of this program through Medical Access and the Ministry of Health. Medical Access is managing the program on behalf of private-not-for-profit health facilities in Uganda.
  • Procurement of Safe Male Circumcision Consumables. Between 2012 and 2013, PEPFAR/USAID awarded Medical Access a Blanket Purchase Agreement to procure and supply Safe Male Circumcision (SMC) products such as pharmaceuticals, surgical supplies and disinfectants. The commodities were supplied to CDC-supported health facilities and implementing partners across Uganda.
  • Procurement of SMC products for the Walter Reed Project. In 2012, PEPFAR awarded Medical Access a contract to procure and distribute SMC kits for the Makerere University Walter Reed Project (MUWRP). The MUWRP voluntary medical male circumcision program supports activities in Kayunga, Buvuma and Mukono districts through facility-based and mobile clinic operations
