    About the role of Pharmacist

    Access to essential drugs is one of the major concerns for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). Pharmacists are responsible for managing the order, supply, inventory and distribution of drugs and medical supplies to our supported clinics and hospitals.

    Ensuring compliance with national rules and regulations is vital. As a Pharmacist, you may be asked to evaluate the availability and quality of drugs being considered for local purchase, work with government officials on supply chain issues and consider how to store medicines in challenging under-resourced locations.
