Description 
Multi-stakeholder partnership supported by a unique set of actors, including The Coca-Cola Company, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, each of whom bring different perspectives to the initiative. Builds institutional capacity to strengthen the supply chain and the overall health system by sharing private sector expertise with government agencies that manage the procurement and distribution of medicines. The partnership works within individual country contexts to set up a tailored program of interventions based on supply chain needs that can be addressed by Coca-Cola’s core competencies and capacities. Aims to increase availability of medicines in medical clinics by 20-30% across 5,500 health facilities across 10 countries over the next 5 years.
