Building on current quality and risk-management best practices, the GDP-UCI seeks to modernise and improve the distribution of vaccines and medicines by applying consensus- and evidence-based improvements and by harmonising GDP processes. The goal is one of improving patient wellbeing through the pursuit of more consistent, compatible, measurable and efficient methods.

The GDP·UCI is unique in that its involvement encompasses the entire pharmaceutical supply chain. This includes actors at all levels, from manufacturers and distributors to carriers, logistics service companies, solution providers and support organisations.
