The Global Markets, Quality and Regulation Technical Resource Team is organising a series of regional workshops in Africa on the optimal procurement of affordable and quality-assured life-saving commodities for maternal health. The workshops are bringing together country representatives to review countries’ experiences in quantification, procurement, quality assurance of life-saving maternal health commodities, examine challenges, highlight the most successful interventions in making the products available and share the latest global development and market intelligence on procurement of essential commodities. The first of these workshops was organized by the World Health Organisation and the Concept Foundation in September 2015 in Uganda, and brought together procurement experts from Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zanzibar, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Participants reviewed each country’s experience in terms of quantification, procurement and quality assurance for maternal health commodities, and shared global data on quality assurance and market intelligence for life-saving commodities. The documents and presentations used during this first workshop could inform subsequent regional meetings. They are organised as follows: - Country experiences (Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe) - Global updates on quality assurance and procurement - Market intelligence
