Dear Colleagues,

The agenda of the ‘International Workshop in Ensuring Product Quality in Procurement and Supply Chain Management’ was to present face-to-face opportunity to the participants from National Medical Supplies Fund (NMSF), Federal Ministry of Health, Sudan in gaining a comprehensive understanding of concepts of Quality Assurance (QA) of pharmaceutical products and processes in procurement and supply chain.

The workshop was held in Al-Fateh Idris Hall in the Abdul Hamid Ibrahim Training Centre (AITC-NMSF) from 13th - 19th April 2018 and was attended by 29 participants. The workshop was led by Professor Andy Barraclough and Ms. Radhika Singh and provided an excellent opportunity to learn from daily work experiences with other participants from different states and districts as well. The participants evaluated the workshop highly in terms of content and methodology.

The participants found the workshop well-structured, comprehensive, rich in content and useful for implementing the QA agenda in their respective departments. Field visit to NMSF central warehouse, case studies, and group work were rated highly. The arrangements of the workshop and the hospitality and commitment of the NMSF staff was highly appreciated by all participants.
