    Bethesda, Maryland, Abt Associates, Partners for Health Reform Plus, 2006 Mar. [170] p. (USAID Development Experience Clearinghouse DocID / Order No: PN-ADF-999; USAID Contract No. HRN-C-00-00-00019-00)

    The pharmaceutical and medical supply system for Ministry of Health hospitals in Jordan is bureaucratic and centralized. Routine paperwork consumes staff time that ideally would go to patient care, procurement does not necessarily match medical needs, pharmacists have little access to the latest information, and resources are limited. This assessment looks at the pharmaceutical system in terms of structure, process, and outcomes to identify its strengths and weaknesses. Drug utilization is measured against internationally established indicators. Based on its findings, the assessment makes recommendations that are intended to lead to improvements in patient care, administrative procedures, use of staff, and financial resources. (author's)
