TAC is a member of the Stop Stockouts Project (SSP) – a consortium of six civil society organisations that monitors medicines’ availability in healthcare facilities in South Africa. The SSP does an annual stockout survey. It also engages with ongoing monitoring of stockouts in healthcare facilities and assists government in the resolution of stockouts. Healthcare workers and patients can report stockouts through SMS, phone calls, or a number of other means.
Stockouts of essential medicines like ARVs or TB medicines places the health of our members and people in our communities at risk. TAC is committed to continuing to monitor stockouts and advocating for systemic solutions to stockouts both within and outside of the SSP.
