HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases

We work with bilateral and multilateral donors, as well as public and private clients, to build secure and reliable supply chains to deliver drugs, diagnostics and other essential commodities to fight and control HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.

HIV/AIDS, MALARIA, TUBERCULOSIS AND NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASESSignificant gains have been made in the past decade to prevent and treat these diseases, but millions of people still suffer the devastating effects on their health and livelihoods.

  • More than half of the 13.7 million people who need treatment for HIV/AIDS do not have access.
  • Malaria kills nearly one million people in the world’s poorest communities – the vast majority being young children, pregnant women and those infected by HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • While 8.8 million people were living with tuberculosis in 2010, more than a third of cases still go unreported and are not treated.

We procure and deliver HIV commodities including antiretroviral medication, test kits, and laboratory equipment that allow a full range of testing and treatment in even the most remote health centres. With the knowledge that an unbroken supply chain is critical to fight diseases like HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, we work with medical supplies warehouses and local partners to prevent stock-outs, improve forecasting and ensure an uninterrupted supply for patients who cannot afford to miss treatments. Additionally, we support modern laboratory networks with well-tailored orders, supplying the exact equipment and commodities needed to provide testing and results-based care without causing waste.

As an advisor to the World Health Organization, we have helped develop international quality and inspection standards for bednets. We are experts in the inspection, specification, procurement and quality assurance of bednets, including long lasting insecticide treated nets (LLINs), untreated nets and re-treatment kits in tablet form.

As many neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) can be controlled with simple, inexpensive, and even free drug treatments, we also ensure these effective drugs can be distributed through a country's health system and protect those living in areas affected by NTDs.
