Strategic Purchasing Africa Resource Centre (SPARC) is a new initiative to strengthen strategic purchasing expertise in sub-Saharan Africa and move countries closer to universal health coverage, launched by Results for Development (R4D) in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Housed within Amref Health Africa, SPARC will match country demand with needed technical expertise by brokering tailored packages of strategic purchasing support.

Mission Statement

SPARC will become a demand-driven, self-sustaining platform that countries implementing strategic purchasing can go to as a first stop to get connected to the right resources and experts.

The four-year Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded initiative aims to  support countries in sub-Saharan Africa to overcome technical, institutional, and political economy obstacles to implementing effective strategic purchasing.
