PROMESS: Essential Medicines Program

PROMESS ("Programme de Médicaments Essentiels") is the principal agency for the provision of essential medicines and medical supplies in the Republic of Haiti. PROMESS was created in 1992 during the embargo, after the failure of the earlier system for provisioning community pharmacies, known as AGAPCO.

PROMESS was founded with funding from the World Bank, bilateral cooperation (France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, USAID, Canada) and multilateral cooperation (UNICEF, UNFPA, the European Commission), as well as partners in the Management Council chaired by the Minister of Public Health.

Since 1992, PROMESS has been managed as a PAHO/WHO project in Haiti. Its mission has been to guarantee the availability of a select group of quality drugs and consumables for public and private nonprofit medical institutions in Haiti.
