• WHO – Technical consultation on preventing and managing global stock outs of medicines 06-04-2016

The meeting, held at the World Health Organization in December 2015 in Geneva, recognized that shortages and stock outs of medicines and technologies are of concern to all countries and that there is a need for coordinated and global action on approaches to managing them. One single approach or action is unlikely to be effective – it was recognized that an approach across the health system (end-to-end) is needed.
