The added value of this african purchasing Centre is to get involved in supporting its members in terms of training, counseling, monitoring and evaluation provided that those members respect the internal rules and the statutes of the Centre especially the charter of ethics of the african Purchasing Centre. It will be accessible to all the public and private orthopaedic and functional rehabilitation centres as well as for organizations and institutions working in the field of disability across the entire african continent.
The Purchasing Centre will have the opportunity to sign contracts with external partners to carry out activities related to its areas of expertise (especially the assessment of the technical quality of cares in rehabilitation, evaluation of projects, etc.) in order to support financially the functioning of its Executive Secretariat without any impact on the cost of products for people with disabilities. The Purchasing Centre will work on finding funding for its members from donors and community institutions. Indeed, there are sources of Community funding as far as the countries of the UEMOA, CEMAC are stakeholders of the Purchasing Centre since its inception.
OADCPH will seek a partnership with WHO especially the department of quality assurance just like what is being done in the field of essential generic drugs.
OADCPH plans to have a central repository based in the host country or in one of the member countries and which will be responsible for supplying all applicant members.
