Accredited Drug Shops: Pitch for Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting 2014Read Dr. Quick's remarks (as prepared)Jonathan D. Quick, MD, MPH, Management Sciences for HealthTwo billion people – one third of the world’s population  – lack regular access to quality essential medicines.   In rural Tanzania, as in most low income countries, when people are sick enough to seek treatment their first stop is not a trained health provider or clinic.  No, their first stop is the drug seller down the street.

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) announced it is seeking partners to complete its  2011 Commitment for Action at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), pledging to scale up sustainable Accredited Drug Shops in five African nations by 2015 to bring quality essential medicines to 70 million people in  rural communities. The program has already served 36 million people in three nations and economically empowered thousands of women.  Over 10,000 Accredited Drugs Shops are now in operation.  Read more about the Accredited Drug Shops here.  MSH President & CEO Dr.
