Guidelines for Good Distribution Practices for Medical Products and Health Technologies in Kenya

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board is committed ensuring the availability of medical products and health technologies in Kenya which satisfy the needs of all citizens for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases using safe, efficacious, high quality and cost-effective pharmaceutical products

Pursuant to this mission, it is imperative that pharmaceuticals are distributed by highly qualified personnel through outlets that are duly licensed and professionally run. Pharmaceuticals require specialized handling to ensure their quality is maintained throughout the distribution chain and the risk of exposing the public to unsafe medicines should be avoided at all cost.

This new GDP guideline, which replaces the 2006 guideline, defines a number of new provisions. They have been prepared to provide persons involved or wishing to be involved in distribution Medical products and health technologies with a method of assessing eligibility and the process of lawfully operating distribution outlets. It further provides specific requirements on distribution that are practices currently acceptable.

The success of this initiative will ultimately depend on the active contribution and cooperation of every stakeholder. I trust that all will strive to uphold the standards of practice in pharmaceutical distribution.

The pharmacy and poisons board strongly encourages the widespread implementation of these guidelines and is ready to assist users in implementing them.
