Schools and Colleges of Pharmacy have integrated global health aspects into the curriculum, yet there is limited guidance for implementation of academic-community medical missions.
A needs assessment was conducted in three countries for planning sustainable missions. Preparation included language training, tropical diseases and country profile..
