ABSTRACT

Objective

The main objective of the study was to determine which component of the National Drug Policy was working and which was not. Thus this study aimed to compare the current practices in the implementation of the Drug Policy with findings obtained in 1996 and 1998 and to determine strengths and weaknesses of some of those strategies adopted in the implementation process. The study took place in the Dangme West District. Subdistrict health staff working in the ten Health Centres and Community Clinics and who were responsible for dispensing were interviewed to assess knowledge of Rational Drag Use / Drug Storage /Drug Distribution components of the essential drag concept and to determine implementation arrangements and status of implementation. Key personnel of private sector health facilities and drag shops were also interviewed using the same criteria and questionnaire. At the community level, heads of households were interviewed to determine level of and impact of the drag distribution component of the policy implementation by measuring accessibility, availability and perception of cost to the individual as an indicator of how far the goal of the NDP had been achieved.
