About the Organization

For 25 years, Medical Access has transformed healthcare supply chains in 35+ low-and middle-income countries. Our journey started in 1998 during the peak of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa.
The UNAIDS Drug Access Initiative (DAI), the world’s first antiretroviral (ARV) access program in low- and middle-income countries, gave rise to Medical Access and enabled us to initiate the introduction of ARVs in Uganda at a critical time.

Since those early days, Medical Access has evolved to provide comprehensive supply chain solutions to leading local and international agencies for a wide range of medical products. Today, we combine our rich experience and robust digital infrastructure to transform supply chains into agile, efficient and reliable systems tailored to the needs of the communities and stakeholders it serves.
