Distributors considering an HDA membership must purchase or receive pharmaceutical and health-related products in bulk quantities, inventory these products, distribute them in individual package quantities and provide other value-added services to its suppliers and healthcare providers. Their customer base must consist primarily of institutions located in the United States and its territories.

Every day, primary pharmaceutical distributors sustain a complex supply chain, serving as a vital link in the healthcare system between manufacturers and healthcare providers. HDA's members work around the clock to help more than 200,000 pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics and other healthcare providers across the country keep their shelves stocked with the medications and products that patients need every day.
HDA's "Vital Link Toolkit" was created to inform and educate the public on the role of pharmaceutical distributors in the healthcare industry.
