The entry of substandard and fake drugs and medical products into the legitimate supply chain can be significantly reduced with the help of GS1 standards. Our standards are used for the effective tracking and tracing of medicines, inventory management and medicine recall. These combine to fight against the influx of substandard and fake medicines during this global pandemic. Suppressed entry of competing fake and substandard products into the supply chain will allow legitimate companies to thrive in business as they should. Inventory management and logistics is improved in pharmaceutical companies and hospitals with GS1 standards. This results in significantly less supply chain inefficiencies, huge cost savings and less time wasted. GS1 standards ensure the sharing of accurate data in healthcare to prevent medication errors. Medication errors adversely affect patient care outcomes and can be a huge cost. This is of particular importance in a high pressure patient care environment as seen in Covid-19 care where overwork and exhaustion among healthcare workers are commonplace. GS1 Healthcare in Nigeria is a reliable partner to help in the fight against Covid-19 to ensure that products that are required by our population and patients are available for use when needed.
