As of January 2013, there are 568 Authorized Sellers of Poison (pharmacies) in Hong Kong. Of these, 94 are chain pharmacies operated by two corporations. This map shows the distribution of pharmacies in Hong Kong and the percentage of chain pharmacies by district.

As indicated by the "Rx" logo, Yau Tsim Mong has the highest number of pharmacies. More than a hundred pharmacies can be found in this district. Less than a dozen pharmacies are located in Southern and Islands. The graduated colours shows that the percentage of chain pharmacy is the least for Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Kowloon City. Percentage of chain pharmacies is higher in district with recently developed new towns such as Tung Chung in Islands District, Tseung Kwan O in Sai Kung District and Ma On Shan in Shatin District.

截至2013年1月,全港共有568間獲授權毒藥銷售商(通稱「藥房」),當中94間是兩間大型企業開設的連鎖藥房。地圖顯示香港各區的藥房分佈及連鎖藥房佔區內藥房的百分比。

依圖中「Rx」標誌所示,油尖旺區是本港最多藥房所在的區域,超過一百間藥房在此區營業;相反,南區及離島區的藥房總數則不多於12間。依圖中顏色所示,屯門區、元朗區及九龍城區的連鎖藥房佔區內藥房的百分比為十八區中最少;而於近年發展的新市鎮,如離島區的東涌、西貢區的將軍澳及沙田區的馬鞍山,連鎖藥房比率則較高。
