// End of Notice//
The Pharmacy and Poisons Board is committed to its mission to ensure the availability of pharmaceutical services in Kenya which satisfy the needs of all 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. The operations in those premises should at all times be supervised by qualified personnel and the risk of exposing the public to unsafe medicines avoided at all cost. Guidelines have been prepared to provide persons in the pharmaceutical fraternity with a method of assessing eligibility and the process of lawfully operating drug distribution outlets.
The success of this initiative will ultimately depend on the active contribution and cooperation of every stakeholder.
