Legitimacy and quality control are proxies for public trust in biomedical products and services. Quality is contingent on the collective integrity of each member of the global supply chain network: manufacturers, distributors, retailers, as well as stakeholders in policy and industry. This poster attempts to characterize the spatial dimension of natural, physical, and human threats to access to uncontaminated, reliable, consistent medical supplies. Scale: building, region, national.
