Strengthening business and financial practices for last mile private providers (ADDOs and PRINMAT)

Accredited drug dispensing outlets (ADDOs), are small retail pharmaceutical outlets that provide access to commodities and services for Tanzania’s rural and urban poor. The Private Nurses and Midwives Association of Tanzania (PRINMAT) is a network of midwife-owned and managed maternity homes in remote locations with limited access to health.

SHOPS Plus is building business and financial capacity of ADDO and PRINMAT providers through business and financial management training, inventory management tools, and credit management tools. The project also worked with a digital health start-up, Maisha Meds, to introduce digital inventory management tools for ADDO’s.
