dc.description.abstract The study was conducted with the overall objective of providing baseline information in order to apply intervention strategies to improve district drug management. The study- a descriptive exploratory design- was conducted in four districts to assess knowledge, motivations and practices of primary health care workers, and knowledge and motivations of district health office staff in drug management and drug utilization. The two districts namely, Dhading and Siraha were selected because GTZ/PHCP is working in those districts.The other two districts were selected from neighbouring Terai and Hill districts. The sample included one Primary Health Care Centre (PHCC), five Health Posts, and six Subhealth posts from each district. The sample also included four District Health Offices. The study used INRUD/WHO indicators, Rapid Pharmaceutical Management Indicators, and few other indicators to measure prescribing practices for four health problems: diarrhoea, ARI, fever, and scabies. The study also exercised interviews with District Health Office staff, prescribers, dispensers, store-keepers and chief of health facilities. en_US
