Game changer: Automated pharmacy dispensing in South Africa

A German company, Mach4, has received the first-ever German Global Health Award for its role as technology provider to Pharmacy of the Future, a development partnership which is improving pharmacy dispensing and access to medicines for the 22 million South Africans who require chronic medication. Mach4 was awarded the prize for its role as the technology provider in the Pharmacy of the Future project, a German-South African initiative to improve drug distribution through the use of automated Pharmacy Dispensing Units (PDUs) located in shopping centres and other public places. PDUs allow patients to collect prescription medications at a time and place of their choosing, without having to wait in lengthy queues at health facilities.
