The GDSN Opportunity for Global Health

Lead Paragraph/Summary

The Global Data Synchronisation Network™ (GDSN) connects interoperable data pools so pharmaceutical manufacturers, logistics providers, regulatory authorities, supply chain managers, and healthcare workers can share and use the same accurate information about health commodity orders. But how does it work exactly and what are the benefits? 

At the Global GS1 Healthcare Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from May 8-10, GHSC-PSM presented this poster which outlines how the project is using the GDSN and why it benefits patients.

More information about the project's work to implement and promote global standards can be found here.
