New Africa Medical Supplies online market to fight Covid-19
In partnership with African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and other leading African & International Corporations, Institutions & Foundations AMSP is being adopted as a single online marketplace to enable the supply of COVID-19-related critical medical equipment in Africa.
AMSP unlocks immediate access to an African & global base of vetted manufacturers and procurement strategic partners. African Union Member States can now purchase certified medical equipment such as diagnostic kits, PPE and clinical management devices with improved cost effectiveness & transparency.
The platform serves as a unique interface enabling volume aggregation, quota management, payment facilitation as well as logistics & transportation to ensure equitable & efficient access to critical supplies for African governments. The Afreximbank will facilitate payments while logistics partners including African national carriers, global freight forwarders will expedite delivery.
“The Africa Medical Supply Platform is just one innovation that African countries have developed themselves, to help mitigate the devastating impact of this pandemic that threatens both the health of our people and our national economies.
We are already getting requests from other parts of the world to franchise the AMSP concept,” said Special Envoy Strive Masiyiwa. “As a mission-driven organization, we are committed to serving our beloved continent in these trying times, leveraging Janngo’s 3 main pillars,” said Fatoumata Bâ, Founder & Executive Chair of Janngo and Managing Partner of Janngo Capital.
These pillars are venture building capabilities, technology expertise & cross-border marketplace track-record, financial & human capital and knowledge sharing sessions & webinars via Janngo Academy.
The next 100 days are critical to turnaround the exponential trend of cases and deaths: both our sense of purpose & sense of urgency have never been stronger,” Bâ added.
