Certificate In Pharmacy

Medicines and health supplies form the backbone of healthcare systems, crucial for meeting the diverse needs of populations. In Uganda, the Government's strategic agenda outlined in the Ministry of Health sector development plan emphasizes ensuring the availability, accessibility, affordability, and utilization of essential medicines of the highest quality. However, addressing the current shortage of pharmaceutical cadres equipped with the necessary skills to manage medicines and health supplies is imperative.

Aligned with the World Health Organization's 'Seven Rights' principles, which emphasize the correct administration of medicines, there's a pressing need to enhance regulation, quality assurance, procurement, warehousing, distribution, and utilization of health products. This necessitates the training and development of competent pharmaceutical assistants who can contribute effectively to the healthcare ecosystem.

Consider this: with numerous health facilities across Uganda, each requiring a pharmaceutical assistant, the demand for skilled professionals is evident. The critical need for a robust curriculum and comprehensive training program for pharmacy assistants cannot be overstated.
