During ‘pill check week’, researchers visited public health institutions countrywide and checked on the availability of a list of 10 essential medicines. These are medicines that should be readily available in public health facilities.
Using innovative technology, the team then reported the results through short messaging services (SMS) to a common site, and the data has been reflected in the map above that shows areas where medication is out of stock.
If you clickon the map, you will be taken to a page where you can see which medicines were out of stock and unavailable during the researchers’ spot check.
