Since 1992, Pharmaciens sans Frontières, Switzerland (PSF) has been undertaking actions worldwide such as the sponsorship of various hospitals and clinics. These actions are initiated based on on-site evaluations. They consist of providing medicines and medical support in these regions.
In Madagascar, PSF supports the clinics in Aina Vao and Mahasoa in order to improve the access to medical care for people in Mahajanga.
In collaboration with PSF, Pharmelp has initiated a project with the University of Antananarivo. The main objectives are the quality control of the medicines and the training of pharmacy students. Consequently, Pharmelp will provide soon the Department of Pharmacy at the Faculty of Medicine with an instrument dedicated to this mission.
Since 2010, PSF has been working in collaboration with the hospital in Lugala, located in the Tanzanian highlands. Pharmelp provides some support through the University of Geneva, Switzerland, which verifies the quality of the medicines available in these regions.
