Program Policies

  1. Are there any reporting requirements?
    RHCs are required to enter the number of therapeutics dispensed (“courses administered”) and inventory/stock on hand (“courses available”) weekly in TPOP. This data should be logged even if your RHC is not placing a new order or the stock on hand is zero.

    TPOP also has a wastage report feature for therapeutics to help HRSA keep track of the therapeutics wasted, the number of doses wasted, and understand how they were wasted. 

  2. Can I give therapeutics to other clinics/hospitals?
    You may share therapeutics with other HRSA-approved locations that you have an established formal contract or agreement with that meet legal pharmaceutical requirements. Also, you can share stock with other organizations enrolled in this program.
