The WHO integrated medical supplies system – WIMEDS is a web-based system. Among others, WIMEDS is a crucial system:

  1. to distribute NTD medicines and diagnosis kits with their correspondent pharmaceutical and logistic documents;
  2. to plan, monitor and facilitate forecasting, transport, storage and access to medicines and diagnosis kits;
