The problem

While the implementation of  traceability systems has been identified by national regulatory authorities as a useful and efficient tool to combat falsification and the illicit distribution of medical products, only some countries have issued traceability regulations.

The solution

Global data standards such as GS1: these provide a harmonised framework for supply chain visibility to enable traceability and the safe passage of medicines through national supply chains.

The ISG’s role

Encouraging countries and organisations to adopt global standards, like GS1, and providing technical assistance to implement product traceability systems.

Activating the value of collaboration and better coordination amongst the Global Health procurement and supply chain management (PSM) community
