Background: In developing countries, patients often rely on pharmacies as the first point of access to healthcare services. Local pharmacy staff perform an array of critical functions in the continuum of care, yet they tend to be undertrained and undervalued.
Purpose: The vision of Vennue Foundation is to change the course of human health.. The access to the whole abstract and if available the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
