Pharmacy Assistant Training Program

In 2012, VillageReach began a three-year initiative to train and deploy a new cadre of  facility-based pharmacy staff to improve data management, decrease logistics burden on clinical staff and improve quality of care. The first cadre of students graduated in 2015.  Graduates are employed by the Ministry of Health to work in health centers in rural areas. Since 2016, VillageReach has transitioned to technical support for this initiative, passing ownership to the Ministry of Health and Malawi College of Health Sciences, while remaining active partners to help the Ministry reach its goal of training and placing a Pharmacy Assistant in every health center nationally – around 650 locations.  Initiative partners include the Malawi Ministry of Health, the Malawi College of Health Sciences, the University of Washington Global Medicines Program, and USAID | DELIVER.
