Government has decided on the complete restructuring of the National Pharmaceutical procurement Unit (NPPU) including the setting up of a new board and management with a view to enhancing effective service delivery.

According to a release from State House, since the inception of the NPPU, the unit has been plagued with numerous operational challenges making it difficult for the unit to carry out its mandate as contained in the National Pharmaceutical Procurement Unit Act 2012.

Government according to the release will receive assistance from health development partners in carrying out the restructuring exercise and thanked the board and management for their invaluable services to the NPPU without which the unit would not have progressed.

Government established the National Pharmaceutical Procurement Unit in 2012 as an autonomous body responsible for the procurement, storage and distribution of drugs and medical supplies for and behalf of all public health facilities throughout Sierra Leone.
