From ordinary painkillers to lifesaving drugs for HIV/AIDS, cancer, hepatitis, and tuberculosis, and even morphine to ease the pain of the dying, drug stock-‐outs are occurring across Romania Solution This project will create an electronic system to monitor stock-‐outs of drugs across the country. A website in Romanian and English will be created which will allow users to report shortages of drugs in their hospitals, communities and judets. The system will also include a mobile phone web application that will utilize GPS data. A blog and interactive maps will display the data to the public which will then be reported to the Romanian Ministry of Health, national and international organizations, thus ensuring transparency and accountability. This system will be used by doctors, nurses, patients and their families and NGOs from all over the country. Information about the team This project is a collaboration between Romanian Angel Appeal, The Union of Organizations for People Affected by HIV/AIDS (UNOPA), and The Coalition of Patients Organizations with Chronic Diseases from Romania (COPAC).
