Tanzania : Medical student creates online platform to secure medicine supply chain

Frank Arabi, a medical student at Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, co-founded PharmLinks software to link pharmaceutical suppliers and wholesalers with retailers in Tanzania. The platform aims to improve medicine tracking and distribution. PharmLinks was launched in 2018 and is still in the pilot phase: 35 pharmacists can now freely log onto the website and search medical products they want in their shops. The system directs them to wholesale suppliers and stores which have undergone safety checks. The pharmacists can then pay for the products and delivery online.
