Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has declared that the Ghana National Electronic Pharmacy Platform, often known as the e-Pharmacy platform, officially launches today, Wednesday, January 3.

The Ghanaian public can easily upload and purchase prescription medications and have them delivered to their locations once they register on the platform using their Ghanacard. Ghana’s nationwide e-pharmacy platform is one of the few in the world and the first of its kind in any African nation.

Dr. Bawumia, who led the e-pharmacy initiative with stakeholders in the pharmaceutical industry after a successful six-month pilot, announced the initiative’s full operationalization on his Facebook page. He expressed delight at the convenience it will bring to Ghanaians as well as its anticipated boost to the pharmaceutical industry.

The e-pharmacy platform is another excellent digitalization program that has been carried out during the previous six years by the current administration.

The digital national identification system (Ghanacard), the national digital property address system, the interoperability of mobile money, the universal QR Code, the digitisation of government services at the ports, the registrar general, the DVLA, passport applications, among many others, are among the most important ones.

The e-pharmacy platform expands on the popular medical drone delivery service, which uses drones to transport critical medications in real time to outlying regions of the nation.
