Rational Management of Medicines: A focus on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
Pretoria, 30 October - 11 November 2011
Swiss TPH "Medicines are an essential and cost-effective tool of health care and an important element of health systems. Yet today, for millions of people worldwide essential medicines remain unavailable and unaffordable. Diseases of poverty including HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis tragically claim innumerable lives in low income countries. There is an urgent need to develop adequate strategies that ensure better access to medicines."
