ARLINGTON, Va. — HDA released a two-minute video that further reinforces the pharmaceutical distribution industry’s critical function as it adapts and rises to the challenge of COVID-19, while also continuing the vital work of delivering the medicines Americans rely on to manage their daily healthcare needs.
The video features HDA President and CEO Chip Davis and underscores how distributors are working tirelessly to support supply chain partners and healthcare providers as well as their employees and communities. Watch below:
Serving as critical infrastructure, pharmaceutical distributors connect the nation’s 1,300 pharmaceutical manufacturers and more than 180,000 healthcare providers and facilities each day. As the logistics experts of healthcare, distributors are working closely with federal, state and local governments and leveraging strong relationships with supply chain partners to respond to COVID-19 — and HDA members and their dedicated employees are committed to supporting frontline heroes within healthcare and beyond.
The Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA) represents primary pharmaceutical distributors — the vital link between the nation’s pharmaceutical manufacturers and pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics and others nationwide. Since 1876, HDA has helped members navigate regulations and innovations to get the right medicines to the right patients at the right time, safely and efficiently. The HDA Research Foundation, HDA’s nonprofit charitable foundation, serves the healthcare industry by providing research and education focused on priority healthcare supply chain issues.
