Abstract

Poor availability of pharmaceutical and surgical supplies was experienced in the latter part of 2011 at hospitals and primary health care centers (PHCs) in Bojanala District, one of the four districts in the North West Province. This resulted in the decision to conduct a comprehensive survey within the district to determine reasons for the shortages and to come up with interventions to improve availability of pharmaceutical and surgical supplies at facilities.
