The aim of this activity is to bring quality health services closer to the communities by providing a range of health care services to the most difficult-to-reach and underserved areas and thus help reduce maternal and child mortality.

As development challenges continue to persist, USAID is increasingly adopting an enterprise driven approach to bolster development in countries where USAID provides assistance. This approach is detailed in USAID’s Private Sector Engagement Policy (PSE), which is a call for market-based approaches that foster enterprise-led development and end the need for foreign aid. Recognizing the role of the private sector, USAID/Guinea & Sierra Leone calls for private sector solutions to strengthen the health system, improve good governance, and increase economic opportunities for youth and women.

In Guinea, healthcare supply chain decisions are often made by professionals with little or no formal supply chain training, leading to inefficiencies in product and service delivery that result in increased prices and stockouts. To address this knowledge gap, the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program (GHSC-PSM) launched a training program in supply chain management of health products in Guinean universities and educational institutions.  This training program is part of the implementation of an important national human resources capacity building program launched by the Guinean Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene in 2017.
