Many of the issues of healthcare quality and safety are consequences of poor management of pharmaceuticals. Globally it is estimated that an average 25% of the total health expenditure is on medicines, with poorer countries spending as much as 30%. Knowledge of the full supply chain cycle of pharmaceuticals and practical skills to enhance its performance are important, not only for managers in leadership positions but for all health workers. Supply chain management activities are fundamental to any health programme's performance and all personnel involved, whether it's an inventory manager in a warehouse, a doctor in a health facility or a procurement officer at the central medical store, must have a good understanding of the basic principles of managing health commodities.

This course is designed to introduce you to the basic concepts of supply chain management with specific focus on pharmaceuticals and health commodities in a developing country context. Whilst covering a broad range of topics, the course delivery will emphasize the importance of integrating supply chain activities for overall health system strengthening.
