How do you ensure that patients get the medicine they need -- at the right dose, when they need it, no matter the circumstances?

Answering that question became the foundation of an enduring partnership between Management Sciences for Health (MSH), USAID, and country governments around the world. Over the past 30 years, as a result of that partnership, countries have made monumental progress in building the systems that move medicines to their final destination: the people who need them.

Medicine Movers, a new microsite by MSH, tells the stories of patients who continue to benefit from these pharmaceutical systems, launched during the peak of the AIDS epidemic.

MSH will be publishing stories and videos over the next several weeks in conjunction with the new Devex and MSH series on improving access to medicines ().

This week: Ethiopia.

Meet Aster, a grandmother living with diabetes and TB, who invited MSH to accompany her on a visit to the pharmacy at the local hospital in Debre Markos, Ethiopia.
