Pharm Access Africa Limited was set up in 2001, to increase access to healthcare for the people of Africa.  Access to healthcare remains a challenge across sub-Saharan Africa. In 2001, per capita spend on health care, in Kenya, for example this was close to US$29. Through various initiatives, this number has gradually risen. However, the general government expenditure on health as a percentage of total government, in Kenya, declined from 11.6 per cent in 2000 to 7.8 per cent in 2007. Statistics from the region do not present a different picture. In short access to health care remains a problem.

Our Mission is: “To increase access to healthcare for peoples of Africa by ensuring accessibility to high quality drugs at the most affordable prices possible.”

Our Vision: “Better Health Better Lives.”

Core Values:

 Our Approach

PAAL provides technical assistance to a number of public and private sector programs, linking these initiatives to major donor organizations in order to provide care, support and sustainability in the health sector.

We facilitate and strengthen mechanisms for all parties involved, working collaboratively at national and international levels in the areas of reproductive health, HIV/AIDS and non- communicable diseases. Over the years, PAAL built partnerships with the National AIDS Control Program, Community Groups, Civil Societies, Faith-Based Organizations, Development Partners and International Donors, honoring our vision towards “Better Health, Better Lives”.

PAAL also partners to harness local expertise and tackle the most intractable healthcare supply chain problems around access: ensuring the availability of healthcare commodities through efficient warehousing and distribution logistics. We are determined to pursue our mission to improve the quality of lives of our people through improving access and availability to high quality drugs. We consider ourselves as partners with Government, NGOs and the community in general in widening access drugs in Kenya.
