Full-Service Pharmacy

Training retail pharmacy staff to identify clients who might have tuberculosis and refer them for testing and treatment can boost diagnoses. But in 17 of 18 countries with a high burden of TB, fewer than 10 percent of retail drug outlets have been engaged in such efforts, according to a Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice study published last month.
Long-term solutions, such as redesigning pharmacy school curricula, are needed and could be applied to other health issues, like malaria prevention and family planning, says study co-author Emily Delmotte.
