                                 Abstract
The research work focused on THE MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL OF INVENTORIES (DRUGS) IN GOVERNMENT HEALTH Institution and the case study was the GOVERNMENT HEALTH INSTITUTION . The main objectives of this study was to look at what inventory is and to come out with relevant criteria to improve upon inventory management practices in the New GOVERNMENT HEALTH INSTITUTION. Government Hospital (NEGH). The specific objective includes identifying inventory management practices at the New GOVERNMENT HEALTH INSTITUTION, determining if the inventory management practices are efficient and effective, and to investigate the challenges confronting the management of inventory in the Hospital. The researcher then gave a brief insight into the chosen case study organization. Stratified random sampling was adopted to selec t a sample size of sixty workers for the study. The investigator used the primary method of data collection to gather information for the study. The investigator found out that the materials ordered are not received on time, unauthorized personnel are allowed into the stores, and store keys are left at the security gate upon closure of work. Based on the findings, the researcher proposed some recommendations which include coordination between suppliers and stores to ensure faster delivery of supplies, bringing to an end unauthorized entry into the stores, and the store keys to be handled by only store staffs.Findings from this study indicate that as currently practiced public procurement is not effective in reducing the cost of drugs. Therefore there is need to evolve, for example to e-procurement which saves the costs of the preparation and transmission of paper purchase requests and invoices and thus eliminating costly, time –consuming errors from manual data entry. To ensure steady, accessible and affordable stock of essential drugs, the supply chains need to be cushioned against price fluctuation. Adequate funding of the sector is also recommended.
