In 2019, GHSC-PSM conducted two rapid assessments that looked at the capacity and barriers of private wholesalers supplying maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) commodities in Mozambique and Zambia. The assessments demonstrated the increasingly important role of these private wholesalers, the importance of public-private collaboration in the MNCH supply chain, and other key findings regarding the ability of wholesalers in low- and middle-income countries to supply quality products, ultimately helping governments ensure the availability of quality-assured, lifesaving medicines for mothers and their children.
