Japan International Cooperation Agency dispatched two medical teams to Nepal in response to a request from its government following a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. The first Japan Disaster Relief (JDR) medical team consisted of 46 members and the second team consisted of 34 members, and each team included two pharmacists. The first team deployed an open-air hospital in Barhabise village, Sindhupalchok District, located northeast of Kathmandu, where medical needs were high. The pharmacists not only dispensed medicines but also selected and managed the pharmaceutical stock. Furthermore, they purchased midazolam, used in surgery at the field hospital, from the local pharmacy, and performed physical assessments for hospital admissions. The second medical team took over the field hospital from the first team on May 9; however, medical care was cancelled as a result of a 7.3 magnitude aftershock on May 12. Soon after the maximum aftershock, the second team treated patients in the village, and then moved to Kathmandu and gave medical assistance at Dhulikhel Hospital-Kathmandu University Hospital (DH-KUH). Here, the pharmacists assisted with sorting and organizing the medicines donated by various countries, as well as providing workshops for the DH-KUH nurses and community medicine personnel. Such activities indicated that to provide appropriate healthcare for victims, the pharmacist was also required to be a medical logistician.
