As a vivid testimonial of the growing acceptance of herbal and traditional medicines as a means to complement and enrich the modern medical landscape –on condition that they are safe, effective and quality-assured– our course on Good Manufacturing Practices of Medicines and Healthcare Products now includes chapters that specifically focus on traditional medicines. The content has been developed on initiative and sponsorship of GIZ Germany, and has been enthusiastically mastered by a first cohort of international students.

 Introdução à Gestão da Cadeia de Aprovisionamento de Medicamentos

At the same time, a group of participants from Angola working for the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program have successfully completed the online course in Portuguese (probably the only existing) on basic principles of supply chain management of medicines and medical supplies.

“O curso foi muito bom porque enquadra-se naquilo que deve aplicar na  vida laboral dentro do projeto PSM Angola. Aprendi todas disciplinas do curso em particular aquilo que não sabia como: Utilização racional de medicamentos; alguns aspectos das roturas regulares; garantias de qualidades; Princípios básicos de aquisição de medicamentos e Monitória e Avaliação. Vou sempre partilhar essa experiência do curso com todos parceiros afim de atingir os objetivos do projeto.”

 Last but not least, the learning platform has fully gone mobile!
