June 23, 2014 – The Medical Stores Department (MSD) in Tanzania
delivers medicines to a clinic via boat in the Rafiji Delta region of
Tanzania’s Pwani District. MSD is the government agency in Tanzania responsible
for procuring, storing and delivering medicines throughout the country. In the
rainy season, MSD uses boats to access rural clinics.
Since Project Last Mile launched in 2010, MSD’s
distribution system has expanded to include delivery to more than 5,500 health
facilities. Previously, MSD delivered to
approximately 150 district warehouses, thus losing sight of the last mile.
