Our job is done when every person on this planet has access to the right medication and medical supplies at the right place and time. And we know how.

Since 2005, i+solutions has set the industry standard for health procurement. We drive an innovative agenda to improve global health supply chains. We combine procurement, training, project management, quality assurance and technical expertise to make a difference from the first to the last mile, closing the gap between patients and medicine.

Big dreams ask for big solutions. That’s why we work with global donors, countries and partners to make a difference daily. These partnerships enable us to scale our solutions, drive industry innovation, and conquer new challenges. Together, we combine big hearts with big data to improve supply chains that secure accessibility and care.
