Celesio believes that pharmaceutical distributors are a vital link in Europe’s medicines supply chain. They provide enormous value for patients by delivering a huge range of medicines within short time frames and across wide geographical areas. They also provide hidden value for healthcare systems through single point distribution to and from multiple sites. Their complex role is however not often well understood by public health policymakers.
This Position Paper explains the scope of pharmaceutical distributors’ activities and Celesio’s policy and regulatory requests to enable this sector to continue to deliver value for all stakeholders.
