Executive Q&A: How pharma's supply chain partners are paving the way for coronavirus therapies

What will it take to bring a treatment for COVID-19 to market? What have we learned from efforts to ensure supply chain stability at the height of the coronavirus pandemic? Leaders from AmerisourceBergen's Strategic Global Sourcing team share their perspective on how we'll make sure the right pieces are in place as manufacturers seek to commercialize new therapies.

Supply Chain Resilience 

Tested by a pandemic, pharma supply chain showed resilience 

When the COVID-19 pandemic began to sweep across the U.S. this year, early fears of shortages of critical pharmaceutical supplies and life-saving drugs were quickly abated by a responsive and resilient supply chain.

Thank you to our frontline heroes. 

Health Policy

Navigating Health Policy

As manufacturers navigate new and looming health policy changes, distributors can help them adapt and thrive.

A recent wave of healthcare policy changes has created new challenges and opportunities for manufacturers. As a manufacturer navigating these tumultuous waters, you can lean on your distributor to rethink and rechart your course through the ever-evolving healthcare landscape.

Policy Market Trends

In uncertain times, manufacturers and government tackle disruption.

The only thing certain about 2020 has been uncertainty. Yet, despite the uncertainty, the arrival of COVID-19 galvanized the relationship between policymakers and drug manufacturers and distributors as all sides worked together to tackle shortage risks caused by massive demand surges across the health care supply chain. They also started looking toward the future.
