Excerpt
Once the national drug advisory or formulary selection committee has decided on the list of essential drugs needed to cope with a country's priority health problems, the next questions to be faced are how to provide efficient supply management, correct prescribing procedures, and patient compliance. Drug Management Inaccurate estimates of the amounts of drugs required lead to overpurchase and spoilage or to underpurchase and out-of-stock crises, which can last several months in a developing country. Such situations are inevitable if purchases are based only on the previous orders, which can be misleadingly low because of an excess of old stock in storage or misleadingly high because of a temporary demand for a drug during an epidemic. The unavailability of drugs can have costly and dangerous consequences, such as substitution of a more expensive or inappropriate drug, no treatment at all, or referral to hospital at far greater cost than treatment at the primary health care level.
