医疗商店许可和网点分为A,B或C根据被许可方在巴基斯坦的资格。巴基斯坦政府建立了先决条件药店的销售发行许可证要求药房前提应当有足够的存储设施的药物和防止阳光直射,灰尘或污垢,包括制冷设备,前提是洁净、卫生和整洁的条件和药品销售的监督下人才(汗,2006年,卫生部,2006)。社区药房药物和多数人口的主要来源是依靠他们寻求卫生保健。这些媒体非常多样化的操作和地理环境,往往缺乏足够的设施、人员和设备。分配器在社区药房工作经常没有受到很好的培训但同时他们看到药品分发给病人。此外他们也参与提供健康教育,对病人进行诊断和治疗推荐(拉巴尼F et al .,2001年,瓦里斯- Qadwai et al .,2006)。
Medical stores are licensed and outlets are categorized as type A, B or C depending on the qualification of licensee in Pakistan. Government of Pakistan has established preconditions for the issuance of sale licence for pharmacies which requires that the pharmacy premises shall have adequate facility for storage of drugs and for their protection from direct sunlight, dust or dirt including refrigeration facility, the premises shall be clean and in hygienic and tidy conditions and the drug sale shall be under the supervision of qualified personnel (Khan, 2006, MOH, 1967) . Community pharmacies are the major source for drugs and majority of population rely on them for seeking health care. These outlets are quite diverse in their operational and geographical settings and often lack adequate facilities, staffing and equipments. Dispensers working at community pharmacies are frequently not properly trained but at the same time they are seen dispensing medicines to the patients. Moreover they are also involved in providing health education, make diagnose and recommend therapy to the patients (Rabbani F et al., 2001, Waris Qadwai et al., 2006).
