Chronic Medicine Dispensation Units

Description/Activities:  Five chronic medicine dispensation points have been set up for patients to pick up their medications in convenient locations allowing patients to collect their chronic medication quickly and easily and at a site closer to their home or place of work.  Stable public-sector patients on chronic medication may be enrolled on the CCMDD programme when they visit the hospital or clinic where they currently collect their medication.

What Makes the Intervention Unique/Different: This provides greater convenience for patients and has helped with greater treatment adherence as well as decongested the government health facilities.

Impact Data:  Set-up of five chronic medicine dispensation points reaching more than 20,000+ units of medication dispensed.
