Oshakati, Rundu medical depots to get equipment worth N$500,000

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) this week will handover warehouse handling equipment valued at N$500,000 to the multi regional medical depots of Oshakati and Rundu.

The US Embassy in a statement said the ceremony will take place on Friday at the Oshakati Depot, which will receive half of the equipment consisting of items such as semi-electric stackers, heavy-duty mobile platforms, and safety gear.

The Global Health Supply Chain Procurement and Supply Management Programme is funded by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and implemented by USAID through Chemonics.

The Oshakati Depot serves consumables and medicines to more than 80 public health facilities in the Oshana, Ohangwena, Oshikoto and Omusati regions, which are home to almost 100,000 people living with HIV (approx. 50% of the country’s patients on ART) while the Rundu Depot serves Kavango East and West.

According to the Embassy the new equipment will enable effective and efficient storage and distribution management of anti-retroviral medication, condoms, therapeutic food, and other pharmaceuticals.
