Résumé Drugs, medical supplies and equipment have a significant impact on the quality of patient care and account for a high proportion of health care costs. Health services need to make informed choices about what to buy in order to meet priority health needs and avoid wasting limited resources. Many organisations have produced useful information about essential drugs, but less information is available about essential medical supplies and equipment. Despite the fact that there is a much wider range of different brands and items to choose from, selecting supplies and equipment is often given little attention. This often results in procurement of items that are inappropriate because they are technically unsuitable, incompatible with existing equipment, spare parts and consumables are not available, or because staff have not been trained to use them. Procurement is only one part of managing medical supplies and equipment, and effective storage, stock control, care and maintenance are also critical if health services are to get the most out of what they buy. However, there is also limited information available about these aspects of management of medical supplies and equipment.
