done through in-depth interviews, observation and document study. Information collected from 6 people

who are involved in the management of drugs in the technical implementation Unit of the Regional Office

uses a special team with the calculation of drug needs using method of consumption. The emptiness and

excess medication are still common due to the change in public health centers affecting the drug prescribing

patterns. Therefore, it needs a good coordination between the planning team in the technical implementation

Unit of the regional office of the District Health Care office in Ambon City with a doctor at the Public health
