This month,Medicines for Africa launched a nationwide essay competition on the Good Governance of Medicines in Zimbabwe. The aim of the competition is to encourage students to play an active role in formulating ideas and strategies for improving good governance in the pharmaceutical sector.
We believe that early and sustained engagement of students on issues pertaining to good governance will, over time, assist in equipping future leaders with some of the essential tools and knowledge necessary to strengthen good governance in the pharmaceutical sector.
