As part of our continuous engagement with the industry, GS1 Nigeria was at the 24th Annual National Scientific Conference of the Association of Hospital and Administrative Pharmacists of Nigeria (AHAPN), tagged EKO 2023 conference. Our team at GS1 Nigeria was honored to be a part of this insightful event, contributing through a presentation on GS1 standards and traceability.

At the conference, GS1 Nigeria had the privilege of engaging with the vibrant community of hospital pharmacists and professionals in the healthcare industry. Our presentation delved into a crucial topic—pharmaceutical traceability in the hospital using GS1 standards and highlighted its immense benefits for the entire supply chain. We emphasized the pivotal role of traceability in ensuring the integrity, safety, and efficiency of pharmaceutical products from manufacturer to patient.

Pharmaceutical traceability involves the ability to track and trace the movement of products through various stages of the supply chain. With GS1 standards, a globally recognized system for uniquely identifying products, locations, and assets, traceability becomes seamless and reliable. This not only helps combat issues like counterfeit drugs and product recalls but also enhances patient safety and regulatory compliance.

Our participation in AHAPN’s EKO 2023 conference reinforced the importance of collaboration and knowledge-sharing within the healthcare industry. We believe that by embracing GS1 standards and leveraging traceability solutions, we can collectively revolutionize the way pharmaceutical products are managed, ensuring their authenticity and quality.
