We are excited to share with you the 2021 Access and Delivery Partnership (ADP) Status Report.
This annual report outlines how ADP has adapted its work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is reversing decades of progress on poverty, health and education, setting back important gains towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
Even while tackling COVID-19, it remains vitally important to ensure that other national health priorities – such as those related to combating tuberculosis (TB), malaria and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) – are also not at risk of neglect. Maintaining the most critical prevention activities and health care services, and minimizing disruptions during the pandemic, will also significantly reduce the indirect impacts of COVID-19, particularly among poor and marginalized populations.
ADP partners have thus adopted a two-pronged strategy: supporting national responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing to bolster national health system capacities.
Since its inception, ADP has supported governments and stakeholders to strengthen national health systems. The ADP partner organizations (United Nations Development Programme, World Health Organization, Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, and PATH) work to strengthen institutional and human capacities within the ‘value chain’ of access and delivery – from policy, legal and regulatory frameworks, to research and regulatory capacities, to systems for procurement and supply chain management – to enable people’s access to health technologies.
