Hey guys so I just did Bali for a week. I took the MMS with me in 2 little bottles. Every morning I took a couple of drops & again in the evening, just to prevent any illness.. well lots of people I went with, & met over there, got very ill with the dreaded Bali belly, but not me!! and I ate salads, seafood etc at some pretty dodgy places! now I can’t be 100% sure it was the MMS, but hey, good enough for me! everyone laughs at my ‘crazy ideas’ but who’s laughing now? but seriously thank you guys sooo much for what you do, I’m trying as best I can to spread the word about MMS !
- Genesis2Church is the best. I am well, and will stay that way, thanks to the sacrament.

GREAT NEWS! After only 5 days on protocol 1000 I had a lump disappear completely! My goal is to eradicate the EBV virus, can't wait to see my test results in a few weeks!!! I'm finally taking control of my own health, way better than the traditional route.
- I started using this Mineral from Heaven 10 months ago.
I Was suffering from Ramsey Hunt Syndrome (Shingles in my ears).
Which left every nerve in my being (entered the spinal column ) ravaged and wracked with chronic pain.
Physical temors and shaking.
Terrible Anxiety. Depression. And the virus kept coming back every 3 weeks for 5 years (while using antiviral). GONE
It has taken a good 6 months to work it out of my system.
Bonus!: warts, gone. Skin pre cancer sun damage, dried up and fell off. Major fungal infection of sinus and skin Tinea Versicolor, gone.
Dark spots and overall weird skin thingies, gone. Body odor, gone. Teeth And gums, awesome. Pink eye, gone. Bronchitis, gone. Sprained ankle wrist, no bruising and healed in a week. Chronic heartburn, gas from any foods. No more.
I use it on burns and cuts (kills the pain), bug bites. Bath in it wash my hair and entire body brush teeth. I use it as a cleaner. Clean meat veggies and fruit. Put it In my cats water. In my garden plants and yard. Fog my house to kill mold.
It may seem like had a lot of health issues (56 years old), and I did.
Are we all suffering from the same common ailments?
Kills Pathogens and Oxidizes toxins, NO LIE.
I have control over my health, and I feel wonderful. Still have some aches and pains that come up and I put the mineral on em!
Thank you for making this available to us all.
I love you Angels.
- Hi,I am taking mms for 14 days. I started with 4 drops in 1 liter of water 8 times a day and every day I put one more drop. Today I thought 20 drops. In the first week I was weak and tired, couldn’t do anything at the gym, but now I am feeling good. I have acne, candida on my tongue, fungus on my toenails. I’m 50 % cured. Thank you.
How to CURE Tropical Diseases with G2Sacraments
People can talk all they want about how to heal and “their” philosophy of healing BUT without testimonies of people being healed it is all empty words and conjecture!
Conjecture : form an opinion or supposition about (something) on the basis of incomplete information
Before I start to show what tropical Illnesses are and how to cure them I want ALL to see some REAL people healed of these following tropical “dis-eases”.
NOTE: ALL the tropical “dis-eases” are being cured with the G2 Sacraments even if there are no testimonies written or in video because of how Chlorine Dioxide works in detoxing the body from 99% of the pathogens in the world
- Malaria: https://mmstestimonials.co/malaria
On REAL.video: https://www.real.video/5810695453001
Protocol to be used. These doses are given 3 times two hours apart!
- 15- 18 activated drops for adults
- 8-14 drops for children under 100 lbs adjust down to 8 if under 50 lbs.
- 2-3 drops babies
NOTE: this is given in at least 4 ounces of water!
Testimony from Bishop Mark Grenon: My sons and I have had this 2-3 times! The last times we have MMS. It was gone in two days and we helped many in Dominican Republic and Haiti!
- Chikungunya: https://mmstestimonials.co/chikungunya
Protocol to be used.6 drops every hour for 3 hours, then reduce to 3 drops for 5 more hours the first day. The next week do 3 drops and hour for 8 hours a day!
NOTE: For children, reduce to half and babies even less but be consistent!
For the following Tropical Diseases, we suggest the Starting Procedure and full body baths and work up to 3 drops an hour for 3 weeks. If NOT healed, then work up to Protocol 2000 for another 3 weeks.
We are seeing amazing things happen with the FULL body baths.
- Start with 25 drops in very warm water for 20 mins.
- Work up to 200 drops for 3 minutes.
- DO this everyday while sick and 3-4 times a week for maintenance.
- For children you can start with 25 and max at 100. We had a 4 month old doing 100 drops daily with 4th stage Liver cancer and it is all gone!!!
- Note: I do it every day! I alternate days from MMS1 (MMS Activated) baths and MMS2 baths.
Note: MMS2 baths 1 teaspoon and dissolve in hot water before adding to bath
3- The Starting Procedure Video #3
From “Imagine, A World Without Dis-ease” by Mark Grenon www.g2hurchbooks.org
or Amazon: https://amzn.to/2mLp7Ix
The MMS Starting Procedure Protocol - Genesis II Church: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhCyJO1aVkE&t=23s
This Starting Procedure must be done before doing the following protocols of 1000, 1000+, 2000. It has been found that this procedure is very necessary for newbies and the very sick. Some people never reach the protocol 1000 and have had their “health restored.” Go slow and don’t be in a hurry. Back off and start over if there is any discomfort that cannot be tolerated. You don’t want to get sicker by releasing toxins into your blood. Let the body eliminate these toxins slowly through the digestive system, lymphatic system or through the skin where 80% of the toxins are expelled. Sweating is good to detoxify.
NOTE: Things that Neutralize Chlorine Dioxide are: Vitamin C, Any Antioxidant, Coffee, Tea, Milk, Alcohol, chocolate, many supplements and medications.
The first day of the Starting Procedure take 1/4th drop of activated MMS1 every hour for 8 hours. Follow these instructions.
Note: In the case of a very sick person, start out the Starting Procedure with even less than the 1/4th drop dose which is suggested above. For an extremely sick person start with 1/8th drop every hour for 8 hours (for one day), then do the Starting Procedure, then begin Protocol 1000.
Step 1. Use an empty, clean, dry, drinking glass. Tilt the glass slightly sideways and drop one drop of MMS1 so the drop goes to the corner of the down part of the glass. Drop one drop of activator on top of the MMS drop. Shake the glass a little to mix the drops.
Step 2. Wait 20 to 30 seconds and then use a cup to measure 1/2 cup of water to put in the glass... This is 4 ounces. Make sure the drops are mixed into the water.
Step 3. Then pour off one ounce of water and take it. That is 1/4 of the liquid now in the glass you can take it as it is or you can add some additional water to the ounce before you take it.
Step 4. Pour the extra 3 ounces down the drain. You won’t be using them. YOU MUST MAKE UP A NEW DRINK EACH HOUR. Each MMS drink must be made up within 30 seconds before taking it and one should be sure to never wait more than 60 seconds before taking. (When using CDS or CDH since 1 ml equals 3 drops of MMS and 1 ml has 20 drops then 2 drops would equal approximately 1/4 drop on MMS. So, use 2 drops for this part.).
The 2nd and 3rd days of the Starting Procedure take 1/2 drop of MMS1 every hour for 8 hours a day.
Step 5. Follow the same 1 and 2 steps as above each hour. Then this time pour off 2 ounces and take them. That is the same as 1/2 of the liquid you now have in the glass. This, of course, gives you 1/2 drop.
The 4th day of the Starting Procedure, take 3/4 drop of MMS1 every hour for 8 hours.
Step 6. Follow the same 1 and 2 steps as above. In this case it would be easiest to pour off 1 ounce of liquid and drink the rest which is 3 ounces of liquid. In other words you are drinking 3/4 of the 1/2 cup of water that you make in steps 1 and 2. At the end of day 4 you have completed the Starting Procedure. You should begin Protocol 1000 the next day by starting at the 1 drop point. Follow the instructions.
Starting Procedure Protocol Schedule
Breakfast 8:00 AM
9:00 AM 1st Dose
10:00 AM 2nd Dose
11:00 AM 3rd Dose
12:00 AM 4th Dose
12:30 AM Lunch
NOTE: Things that Neutralize Chlorine Dioxide are: Vitamin C, Any Antioxidant, Coffee, Tea, Milk, Alcohol, chocolate, many supplements and medications.
1:30 PM 5th Dose
2:30 PM 6th Dose
3:30 PM 7th Dose
4:30 PM 8th Dose
NOTE: Wait one hour after so, after the day’s protocol eat supper after 5:30 PM.
We always get questions about what to eat for lunch. First of all, you won’t be eating a BIG meal for lunch while on this protocol. The less food in the stomach the better. Here are some ideas of what to eat for lunch from what we do here for people that attend our Health Restoration Center. What is good to eat:
- Soups including bone broths
- Sandwiches, meat and cheese, peanut butter,
- Eggs including egg salad
- Salad with a few tomatoes. Tomatoes have vitamin C but a few are ok.
- Pasta with a cream sauce or tomato sauce
- Tacos, chili, burrito, tamale
- Baked potato with butter with even a little sour cream
- Vegetables low in vitamin C: Celery, artichokes, carrots, corn, peas, olives.
(A little avocado is ok.)
Note: When some vegetables are cooked they lose vitamin C
Here is a list of foods with no or low vitamin C
Remember, we are talking only lunch here during the daily protocol. At night after the daily protocol you can eat almost anything healthy – always organic of course. Remember, you are detoxing. Stay away from processed, canned foods and fast food restaurants! Get off all your toxic medications which are ALL of them.
At the Health Restoration Center, this is what I give attendees for breakfast and supper: (All organic, of course)
- Every morning and night a 12-ounce glass of Raw milk, 1-2 Raw eggs Raw cacao, with Raw honey sometime 1-2 ounces of Raw liver and blend it into a shake. It is delicious and only people with strong sense of taste even taste the liver. Liver is one of the highest foods with b-12 and iron which is essential for building new cells as well as cholesterol. Cholesterol is a major part of every cell in the body!
- Every night same thing.
- For breakfast attendees can have a cup of coffee, tea, fruits. It is no problem because they wait 1-2 hours before starting the daily protocol. That food will basically be out of the way especially if liquid.
- From 9 AM to 5:30 PM NO things that Neutralize Chlorine Dioxide are: Vitamin C, Any Antioxidant, Coffee, Tea, Milk, Alcohol, chocolate, many supplements and medications.
- At night after daily protocol, any fruits and vegetables, teas, coffee, juices, and supplements, (the best supplements are food!) are ok. We give Moringa with is a SUPER anti-oxidant with 40+!
Basically, at night you can eat what you want but REAL food and organic

Ebola Defeated In Sierra Leone BY
Ebola survivors can face stigma in their communities and may also have lost loved ones to the disease. Even as they physically recover, their mental health may suffer. Genesis II Church of Health and Healing Minster encourage communities to accept others that have survive the virus. The story of this success is given on the pages below all the pictures. I hope you will read it.
Ebola Survivors from Genesis II Church in our small rented facility are shown below. Our Minister of Health treating the Ebola patients in Sierra Leone has pinned a hand- written sign on his outfit so you won’t miss the point that our church is treating the Ebola patients. He has asked us not to give his name at this time for security reasons. We apologize for not having a fancy clinic and lots of volunteers, but we have only one Minister to Health do the job and he has done fantastic

We thank you all for your support and with you help we can eradicated this virus. If we have private isolation treatment center we will be developing full time documentary programs so that everyone can see that MMS is doing the job. We are committed.
Thank you all
Genesis II Church Of Health and Healing, Sierra Leone
Genesis II Church of Health and Healing Volunteers in Sierra Leone are actively educating community to report early if they detect any of the signs and symptoms of Ebola.
How long can Ebola virus survive outside the body? The virus can survive for hours or days, depending on the environmental conditions. The Public Health Agency of Canada Pathogen Safety Data
Sheet states that the risk of transmission via "fomites" (objects that are contaminated with germs) is low when recommended cleaning with bleach is undertaken.
How do you know if someone has recovered from Ebola? What else is it important for recovered individuals to know? People are infectious - that is, they can spread the disease - as long as the virus is still in their blood and secretions. Protocol 2000 which is taking MMS1 hourly 10 hours or more a day is helping Ebola patients get a speedy recovery. Ebola patients are closely monitored as their symptoms subside and given blood tests to see if the virus is still in their blood before they are discharged from our facility.
The Doses used to CURE Ebola
The Protocol 2000 was used which is as follows:

Video #6: https://youtu.be/l3h-ghKxcuA
This is information I included from the WHO. I want everyone to see what they recommend to be done with Tropical Dis-eases!
Note: Malaria is the #1 killer of all time in the history of the world! Up to 2 Billion people have died with the 2nd most killer is T.B. at 1 Billion. There is a 99+% cure rate and it is being suppressed!
Cases -216 million malaria cases worldwide in 2016
Deaths - 445 000 malaria deaths worldwide in 2016
WHO recommends a full antimalarial treatment course be given to pregnant women, infants and children to prevent the consequences of malaria infection.
WHO recommends the administration of IPTp for pregnant women in areas of moderate to high malaria transmission in Africa.
WHO recommends the administration of IPTi for infants in areas of moderate to high malaria transmission in Africa. The administration of the therapy should correspond to the routine vaccination schedule.
WHO recommends the administration of SMC for children under 5 years of age in areas with highly seasonal malaria transmission in the Sahel sub-region in Africa.
Dengue is widespread throughout the tropics, with risk factors influenced by local spatial variations of rainfall, temperature, relative humidity, degree of urbanization and quality of vector control services in urban areas. Before 1970, only nine countries had experienced severe dengue epidemics. Today, the disease is endemic in more than 100 countries in WHO’s African, Americas, Eastern Mediterranean, South-East Asia and Western Pacific regions; the Americas, South-East Asia and Western Pacific regions are the most seriously affected.
Member States in three WHO regions regularly report the annual number of cases to the Secretariat. Figure 1 shows the number of dengue cases (suspected or confirmed) notified to WHO since 1990.
The actual numbers of dengue cases are underreported and many cases are misclassified. One recent (2013) estimate indicates that 390 million dengue infections occur every year (95% credible interval 284–528 million), of which 96 million (67–136 million) manifest clinically (with any severity of disease).1 Another (2012) study, of the prevalence of dengue, estimates that 3.9 billion people in 128 countries are at risk of infection with dengue viruses.2
The leishmaniases are a group of diseases caused by protozoan parasites from more than 20 Leishmania species.
These parasites are transmitted to humans by the bites of the infected female phlebotomine sandfly - a tiny – only 2–3 mm long – insect vector. There are three main forms of leishmaniasis: cutaneous, visceral or kala-azar, and mucocutaneous.
Most people infected by the parasite do not develop any symptom at all in their life. Therefore, the term leishmaniasis refers to the fact of becoming sick due to a Leishmania infection and not the mere fact of being infected with the parasite.
4. Lymphatic filariasis (Elephantiasis)
What is lymphatic filariasis
Lymphatic filariasis, commonly known as elephantiasis, is a painful and profoundly disfiguring disease. In communities where filariasis is transmitted, all ages are affected. While the infection may be acquired during childhood its visible manifestations may occur later in life, causing temporary or permanent disability. In endemic countries, lymphatic filariasis has a major social and economic impact with an estimated annual loss of $1 billion and impairing economic activity up to 88% (Katabarwa M et al. 2008).
The disease is caused by three species of thread-like nematode worms, known as filariae – Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Brugia timori. Male worms are about 3–4 centimetres in length, and female worms 8–10 centimetres. The male and female worms together form “nests” in the human lymphatic system, the network of nodes and vessels that maintain the delicate fluid balance between blood and body tissues. The lymphatic system is an essential component of the body’s immune system.
Filarial infection can cause a variety of clinical manifestations, including lymphoedema of the limbs, genital disease (hydrocele, chylocele, and swelling of the scrotum and penis) and recurrent acute attacks, which are extremely painful and are accompanied by fever. The vast majority of infected people are asymptomatic, but virtually all of them have subclinical lymphatic damage and as many as 40% have kidney damage, with proteinuria and haematuria.
Elimination of lymphatic filariasis is possible by interrupting the transmission cycle. Providing treatment on a large-scale to entire communities where the infection is present can stop the spread of infection. This strategy of preventive chemotherapy, called mass drug administration (MDA), involves a combined dose of 2 medicines given annually to an entire at-risk population in the following way: albendazole (400 mg) together with ivermectin (150–200 mcg/kg) or with diethylcarbamazine citrate (DEC) (6 mg/kg). These medicines have a limited effect on adult parasites but effectively reduce microfilariae from the bloodstream and prevent the spread of microfilaria to mosquitoes. MDA with albendazole (400 mg) alone should be given preferably twice per year to stop the spread of LF in areas where Loa loa is present.
Here is an interesting interview with a guy that was part of the making of the movie, “Outbreak” about Ebola. Pay attention to what he is saying at: from 23:26 – 29:35 minute mark!
Insider Exposes Elite, Outbreak, Ebola & Global Domination - Derek Broes:https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=105&v=CCnxWfYapmo
- Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans.
- The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
- The average EVD case fatality rate is around 50%. Case fatality rates have varied from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks.
- The first EVD outbreaks occurred in remote villages in Central Africa, near tropical rainforests. The 2014–2016 outbreak in West Africa involved major urban areas as well as rural ones.
- Community engagement is key to successfully controlling outbreaks. Good outbreak control relies on applying a package of interventions, namely case management, infection prevention and control practices, surveillance and contact tracing, a good laboratory service, safe and dignified burials and social mobilisation.
- Early supportive care with rehydration, symptomatic treatment improves survival. There is as yet no licensed treatment proven to neutralize the virus but a range of blood, immunological and drug therapies are under development.
Why Does the American Government Have a Patent on the Ebola Virus?
As the Ebola crisis continues its out of control spiral, some interesting facts have recently arisen. It appears that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Monsanto, along with the Department of Defense (DoD) could all make a nice profit from the Ebola crisis, especially should it come to America, oh, and yes, did they mention that these vaccines have been under development for the past 10 years
WHO and experts prioritize vaccines, diagnostics and innovative vector control tools for Zika R&D
1947 Rockefeller Patent Shows Origins of Zika Virus: And What About Those Genetically Modified Mosquitoes?
As you’ve probably already heard, the World Health Organization (WHO) recently made an announcement declaring the Zika virus to be a global health emergency. They did so without providing much detail about the disease, however, so here is some more information and answers to questions many people are asking, such as: Where did it come from? And do the millions of genetically modified mosquitoes that have been released in these areas have anything to do with it?

First of all, this sexually-transmitted virus has been around for approximately 70 years, and is actually marketed by two companies, but before we get to that, let’s find out who owns the patent on the virus. It’s the Rockefeller Foundation.
An estimated 8 million people are infected with Trypanosoma cruzi worldwide, mainly in Latin America where Chagas disease remains one of the biggest public health problems, causing incapacity in infected individuals and more than 10 000 deaths per year.
Chikungunya is a mosquito-borne viral disease first described during an outbreak in southern Tanzania in 1952. It is an RNA virus that belongs to the alphavirus genus of the family Togaviridae. The name “chikungunya” derives from a word in the Kimakonde language, meaning “to become contorted”, and describes the stooped appearance of sufferers with joint pain (arthralgia).
There is no specific antiviral drug treatment for chikungunya. Treatment is directed primarily at relieving the symptoms, including the joint pain using anti-pyretics, optimal analgesics and fluids. There is no commercial chikungunya vaccine. http://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/chikungunya/en/
Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Zoonotic diseases are infectious diseases of animals that can cause disease when transmitted to humans.
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs)– a diverse group of communicable diseases that prevail in tropical and subtropical conditions in 149 countries – affect more than one billion people and cost developing economies billions of dollars every year. Populations living in poverty, without adequate sanitation and in close contact with infectious vectors and domestic animals and livestock are those worst affected.
What is onchocerciasis?
A blackfly (Simulium-damnosum) under microscope (x 100). a parasite comes out of one of its antena
The filarial worms (O. volvulus) are transmitted from person to person by the repeated bites of infected black flies (Simulium spp.) . These black flies breed in fast-flowing rivers and streams, mostly in remote villages located near fertile land where people rely on agriculture.
In human, female adult worms produce embryonic larvae (microfilariae) that migrate to the skin, eyes and other organs. A single female worm can release up to 1000 microfilariae larvae per day into the surrounding tissue. When a female black fly bites an infected person during a blood meal, it also ingests microfilariae which develop further into the infectious L3 stage and are then transmitted to the next human host during subsequent bites.
What is schistosomiasis ?
Schistosomiasis is a disease of poverty that leads to chronic ill-health. Infection is acquired when people come into contact with fresh water infested with the larval forms (cercariae) of parasitic blood flukes, known as schistosomes. The microscopic adult worms live in the veins draining the urinary tract and intestines. Most of the eggs they lay are trapped in the tissues and the body’s reaction to them can cause massive damage.
Schistosomiasis affects almost 240 million people worldwide, and more than 700 million people live in endemic areas. The infection is prevalent in tropical and sub-tropical areas, in poor communities without potable water and adequate sanitation. Urogenital schistosomiasis is caused by Schistosoma haematobium and intestinal schistosomiasis by any of the organisms S. guineensis, S. intercalatum, S. mansoni, S. japonicum, and S. mekongi.
Several million people all over the world suffer from severe morbidity as a consequence of schistosomiasis.
The WHO strategy on use of anthelminthic drugs now makes it possible to control schistosomiasis in poor and marginalized communities, in conjunction with interventions against lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and soil transmitted helminthiasis. In highly endemic areas, severe morbidity due to schistosomiasis can be prevented by regular treatment of at risk groups targeted based on community diagnosis based on sentinel groups. Praziquantel has been safely co-administered with albendazole and ivermectin, in areas where these drugs have been used separately for preventive chemotherapy.
A viral infection spread by a particular species of mosquito.
Preventable by vaccine
Treatment can help, but this condition can't be cured
Spreads by animals or insects
Requires a medical diagnosis
Lab tests or imaging often required
Short-term: resolves within days to weeks
Yellow fever is spread by a species of mosquito common to areas of Africa and South America. Vaccination is recommended before travelling to certain areas.
Mild cases cause fever, headache, nausea and vomiting. Serious cases may cause fatal heart, liver and kidney conditions.
No specific treatment for the disease exists. Efforts focus on managing symptoms and limiting complications.
About guinea-worm disease
Guinea-worm disease is caused by the parasitic worm Dracunculus medinensis or "Guinea-worm". This worm is the largest of the tissue parasite affecting humans. The adult female, which carries about 3 million embryos, can measure 600 to 800 mm in length and 2 mm in diameter. The parasite migrates through the victim's subcutaneous tissues causing severe pain especially when it occurs in the joints. The worm eventually emerges (from the feet in most of the cases), causing an intensely painful oedema, a blister and an ulcer accompanied by fever, nausea and vomiting.
Infected persons try to relieve the burning sensation by immersing the infected part of their body in local water sources, usually ponds water. This also induces a contraction of the female worm at the base of the ulcer causing the sudden expulsion of hundreds of thousands of first stage larvae into the water. They move actively in the water, where they can live for a few days. More details.
For further development, these larvae need to be ingested by suitable species of voracious predatory crustacean, Cyclops or water fleas which measure 1–2 mm and widely abundant worldwide. In the cyclops, larvae develop to infective third-stage in 14 days at 26°C.
When a person drinks contaminated water from ponds or shallow open wells, the cyclops is dissolved by the gastric acid of the stomach and the larvae are released and migrate through the intestinal wall. After 100 days, the male and female meet and mate. The male becomes encapsulated and dies in the tissues while the female moves down the muscle planes. After about one year of the infection, the female worm emerges usually from the feet releasing thousands of larvae thus repeating the life cycle.
No drug is available to prevent or heal this parasitic disease – exclusively associated with drinking contaminated water. Dracunculiasis is, however, relatively easy to eliminate and eventually eradicate

LF is targeted for elimination: Brazil, Dominican Republic and Haiti could initiate post MDA surveillance in 2018; and Guyana in 2021. Costa Rica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago were removed from the list of endemic countries
The attainment of this goal requires improving equitable access to priority and quality medicines, vaccines, and other health technologies, according to available scientific evidence, which is important for universal access to health and universal health coverage. The availability of these health technologies and their rational use involve the following considerations:
- timely and affordable access to safe, quality, effective medicines and other health technologies;
- a national essential medicines list and a priority health technologies list;
- a strong national immunization program;
- sustainable mechanisms for public procurement and strengthening of the supply chain for medicines and vaccines;
- promotion of a competitive environment and transparent and efficient practices in the management of medicines, vaccines, and other health technologies, including the optimization of regional and subregional mechanisms and funds;
- innovation, health technology assessment (HTA) and health technology management in accordance with the needs of the population;
- development of innovative medicines in accordance with needs of the population;
- management of intellectual property to promote innovation.
TARGETS FOR 2030
- Ensure timely access to medicines on the national essential medicines list, and to priority health technologies, without any payment at the point of care, service, or dispensing of the medicine, according to the national context (revised PAHO Strategic Plan outcome 4.3).
- Reach 95% vaccination coverage in children under 5 years of age, through national vaccination programs (revised PAHO Strategic Plan outcome 1.5).
- Have in place a national regulatory authority for medicines rated at level-3 capacity based on the WHO global benchmarking tool. (Adapted from PAHO Strategic Plan outcome 4.3).
- Implement health technology assessment methodologies in the decision-making processes for incorporation in health systems (PAHO Report: Health Technology Assessment and Incorporation into Health Systems, document CSP28/11 ).
- Implement the requirements of the international Basic Safety Standards in diagnostic and therapeutic services that use radiation health technologies (Radiation Protection and Safety of Radiation Sources: International Basic Safety Standards, PAHO document CSP28/17, Rev. 1 ).
- Promote only and exclusively non-remunerated, repeated, voluntary blood donations, and discourage remunerated and family/replacement donations except where protected by the national regulatory system (Plan of Action for Universal Access to Safe Blood, PAHO resolution CD53.R6 ).
- Strengthen national, subregional and regional mechanisms for negotiation and purchasing to improve the capacity of countries to obtain more affordable and equitable prices for medicines, vaccines, and other health technologies (Policy on Access and Rational Use of Strategic and High-cost Medicines and Other Health Technologies, PAHO document CD55/10, Rev. 1 ).
- Taking into account public health perspectives, strengthen the capacity to implement intellectual property policies and health policies that promote research and development of medicines, vaccines and other health technologies for communicable and noncommunicable diseases that primarily affect developing countries and that promote access to affordable medicines, vaccines, and other health technologies (adapted from SDG target 3.b and Policy on Access and Rational Use of Strategic and High-cost Medicines and Other Health Technologies, PAHO document CD55/10, Rev. 1 [2016
