Storage and Supply Chain Management

The distribution of medicines is the process by which they are transported from a central warehouse to storage depots and health facilities. A well designed medicines supply system ensures that procurement, warehousing and transportation are seamlessly linked to form a network that can deliver the requested medicines to health facilities and pharmacies in good time, in the correct quantities and at the lowest possible cost. In order to guarantee that the quality of the medicines distributed is preserved, the distribution system also has to ensure that good storage and distribution practices are maintained throughout the distribution chain.
