mPharma partnered with a leading business process executive to create the supply chain foundation for scale

In building Africa’s first Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM), mPharma partners with major pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance companies, financial institutions, and governments to deliver medicines directly into the hands of consumers in Nigeria, Ghana, and Zambia. mPharma has distributed over one million units of prescription drugs to more than 20,000 patients at a savings of 30 percent on existing market retail prices.

mPharma’s top priority was to upgrade its existing procurement and inventory management processes and systems as it prepared to scale from 30 hospitals to 80. mPharma partnered with Rippleworks to build a world-class supply chain strategy as it transforms medication delivery across Africa.

mPharma lives and dies on supply chain. Over 200 providers rely on mPharma to manage their drug supply chain so it was important that we had the right systems and framework to work with.

Rippleworks provided us with the right direction that put us on the trajectory to build a world class supply chain infrastructure.
