Drugs Monitoring

As part of our monitoring efforts we have set up a dedicated unit for the monitoring of the Free Health Care drugs.  The Drug Distribution and Supervising Unit is charged with the responsibility of monitoring and supervising the Free Health Care drugs distribution, utilization, and supplies across the 14 District stores including the Central Medical Store. To support our monitoring work we recruited and trained 30 Drugs Supervisors.

Drugs distribution for the Free Health Care Initiative started on the 19th of April 2010. UNICEF and UNFPA procured the drugs and hired private trucks for distribution to and from the District Medical Store. As part of our monitoring activities we ensure that every truck is accompanied by an HFAC Drugs Supervisor to ensure the safety of the drugs to their destination.

Upon arrival, the drugs are offloaded in the presence of HFAC District Coordinators and Monitors, District Health Stakeholders including the District Medical Officers, Medical Superintendents, Pharmacists, Store Keepers, Council Representatives and members of the media. Before the drugs are handed over to the Districts Medical personnel in charge, they are thoroughly counted against the waybill to ensure that the correct quantities have been delivered to the correct destination.   Once counted the Receiving Officer at each destination then certifies the quantities of drugs received.
