  • History
    In 2012-13 the Foundation engaged Geneva-based consultancy group, Global Development, in a 2-phase project to identify Global Health opportunities and existing initiatives in which pharmaceutical wholesalers could participate; where their knowledge, experiences, competencies and technologies can support access to medicines and/or improve the safety of the world's pharmaceutical supply chains. The project ultimately catalyzed working relationships with participants in the initiatives currently being targeted/pursued.
