KENYA MEDICAL SUPPLIES AUTHORITY


Description

The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) is a specialized medical logistics provider for Ministries of Medical Services/Public Health-supported health facilities and programmes. The Authority was formed on 11th February 2000 as a result of recommendations of a health stakeholders’ forum dubbed “Strategies for Reforming the Drug and Medical Supplies Systems in Kenya” held between June 7 and 10, 1998. A State Corporation established by a legal notice issued under CAP 466 of the Laws of Kenya, KEMSA replaced successive medical stores administrations that had existed since 1901 under various names. KEMSA works to support the National Health Strategic Plan and the Kenya Health Package for Health in providing public health facilities with the “right quantity and quality of drugs and medical supplies” at the best market value”.
