Office of Pharmaceutical Affairs is responsible for a set of tasks including providing, maintaining, and distributing medicine, supervising activities of pharmaceutical service providers (warehouses, comprehensive health centers, health stations and healthcare houses), training and raising awareness of the staff and the society, and coordinating with other units for accurate planning and prediction of medical needs in different seasons and at the time of implementation of various health plans. The main objective of this department is to support implementation of various health programs by providing medicines and supplements. Due to importance of hygiene and its role in well-being of the individual, providing the correct and appropriate pharmaceutical services can play an important role in maintaining and improving health and hygiene at individual and social levels. Medicine can be provided both from the public and private sectors, taking into account various factors. In this regard, consideration should be given to factors such as the amount of consumption and future need, different health plans and programs, traits of the medicine, expiry date, color, price, etc. Preservation and storage of medicine are also of great importance and paying attention to preservation condition and standardization of pharmaceutical stores can have a significant impact on better provision of pharmaceutical services. Distribution of medicine is in fact the last link and one of the most important stages of medicine supply chain, which requires planning and availability of specific logistic equipment along with several other factors, including usability, timely and appropriate distribution, and many others.
