: The study assessed implementation of good pharmacy practices (GPP) in health facilities in Uganda and reported on 67 GPP measures. Some of these GPP measures involved exit interviews to explore medicines labelling and knowledge on how to take the medicines but did not involve patients, human or personal identifiable health or personal data, human tissue, or animals; therefore, the study did not require ethical approval or a waiver. All observations and data collection were conducted with the permission of Ministry of Health, the National Drug Authority (NDA), the facility in-charges, the inspectors and verbal consent by the patients interviewed. All authors of the manuscript have read and agreed to its content and are accountable for all aspects of the accuracy and integrity of the manuscript in accordance with ICMJE criteria.
