The Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) Central Pharmacy (CP) was created in 1989 to centralize the procurement, storage of medicines, and to ensure equitable distribution of medicines to all CBC health institutions. The CP was authorized by Cameroon’s Ministry of Public Health on March 2, 2017. Since its creation, the frequent shortage of some essential items in the CBC health institutions and over-stocking of these same items in others has been resolved considerably. The Central Pharmacy Drug Supply Services is the second drug supply management system in Cameroon after CENAME in terms of centralized procurement, distribution and capacity. CP has well trained scientists who specialize in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Analysis, Analytical Chemistry, Microbiology and Laboratory Technology. There is also a host of support staff.
