ARLINGTON, Va. — The Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA) released policy principles reaffirming the pharmaceutical distribution industry’s commitment to assisting the country and frontline healthcare providers during pandemics and public health emergencies.
HDA highlights four priority areas:
“COVID-19 has shown America’s pharmaceutical supply chain, powered by HDA distributors, to be resilient,” said HDA President and CEO Chester “Chip” Davis, Jr. “Armed with significant logistics expertise and strong relationships across the healthcare ecosystem, pharmaceutical distributors are a vital partner in our country’s response efforts — and HDA members will continue to do whatever it takes, in coordination with the public sector, to ensure the delivery of critical medicines and supplies to healthcare providers and their patients.”
