Launch DSI

Project Overview

LaunchDSI facilitated the development, implementation, and scale-up of accredited drug seller initiatives (ADSIs) to increase access to quality pharmaceutical products and services in Africa through public-private sector collaboration. To achieve this goal, the project established a technical resource center based in MSH's Tanzania office. This center provided small start-up grants and technical assistance to African countries to help them adapt and replicate the ADSI model. The project worked with Tanzania's Pharmacy Council, which provided oversight of the country's accredited drug dispensing outlet initiative—the flagship on which others are modeled—to ensure its sustainability and serve as an example for other countries.
