responsible for procurement and distribution of medicines and other medical
supplies to the public health facilities.
The main objective of NMSF is to make essential quality medicines accessible
across the country at minimum possible cost to the NMSF and patients.
With limited resources, the NMSF is working to effectively and efficiently
establish systems and to set priority policies and strategic plans to improve
the public health supply chain in Sudan.
One of NMSF’s strategies for meeting its objectives is staff development.
Therefore, NMSF has invested tremendously in capacity building within health

The opening event of the Training Centre on April 17th, 2017 was attended by HE
the President of Sudan. He praised the work by NMSF by granting them one of the
country’s top honours to the Director General and NMSF's staff the Star of
Achievement and Medal of Achievement respectively. This presidential decree
will give much motivation for the NMSF to continue its success.
