[e-drug] Digital health technologies to support access to medicines & pharmaceutical services

E-DRUG: Digital health technologies to support access to medicines & 
pharmaceutical services
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear e-drug members,

Please find below the link to a new open-access paper published in
SAGE's *Digital Health: *

Digital Health Technologies to Support Access to Medicines and
Pharmaceutical Services in the Achievement of Sustainable Development Goals”
<https://goo.gl/EtmRrW>

This paper summarizes intersectional approaches to institutionalize more
than 35 customized digital health technologies that promote access to
medicines and pharmaceutical services.

It includes five case studies: a dashboard module to help reduce
contraceptives stock-outs in Bangladesh; an electronic dispensing tool for
antiretroviral therapy in Namibia; a digital medicines registration system
in Mozambique; products warehousing technology in Uganda; and a medicines
management logistics system in Mali.

The paper also describes how this work will set the stage for advocacy and
policy changes and future research to track progress toward SDG 3 targets
as part of the UN's Voluntary National Reviews.

The work reflects multi-year initiatives by USAID-funded pharmaceutical
systems strengthening programs.
