McKesson Europe Position Paper: Managing Medicines Shortages

Medicine shortages remain a major health issue for patients. They are the result of multiple causes, and therefore have no simple solution: they require strategic management and coordination across the medicines supply chain.

As one of Europe’s largest medicines distributors and pharmacy owners, McKesson Europe takes this issue very seriously. In this Position Paper, we outline the measures we are already taking and also set out proposed policies which would involve other stakeholders that we believe are necessary to address this problem.
