Guinea’s facility-level stock-out rates for malaria commodities are low. Malaria commodities are readied in the central medical store’s (Pharmacie Centrale de Guinée-PCG’s) regional warehouses ahead of distributions; this process is based on an inventory control system that has alerts triggered by stock levels that are below or above determined thresholds.
