Q. Why do so many people still lack access to medicine in the world?
A. For those of us who live in developed countries, it’s hard to understand why so many people in the world lack access to even the most basic medicines. But in many countries, even hospitals have no medicine or basic equipment to treat patients.
Pharmacies, where they exist, often have bare shelves. Doctors in many countries can diagnose patients but have no medicine to treat them. Sometimes countries simply lack the financial resources to import the needed quantities of medicines for those in need. Other times, they lack the appropriate storage to keep medicines at the correct temperatures or to safeguard them from tampering.
Most resource-poor countries have few controls over what medicines are available and therefore counterfeit or ineffective treatments are sometimes sold on the street and often at a very high price. Organizations like MAP ensure that quality medicines are delivered properly to trusted health practitioners in countries where many—if not most—of the population has no access to life-saving treatment.
