  • Perspectives on Substandard & Falsified Medical Products (13 min talk)

    I'm delighted to have been invited to present at the Global Health Challenges seminar series, organised by the Global Health Network and the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health (at the University of Oxford). My talk was one of several on the theme of "Ensuring Quality", in a session chaired by Prof Paul Newton. In this 13 min (ish) talk I discuss my current area of research and explore the exceptionally complex moral mazes that arise in real-world settings due to the uncertainty of medical product quality. I'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback - please do get in touch or leave a comment below. The other talks in this wonderful series are freely available to view, here:

  • Diphtheria Response - Bangladesh

    Hi Global Pharm-ers Advice please! I'm currently supporting a emergency response to the diphtheria outbreak in Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a really challenging country for pharmaceutical importation, plus there are Quality Assurance concerns for national market procurement. I've found that there are several production lines with European regulatory approval (i.e. manufacturers) which is great, but we'll need to procure via a distributor. I was hoping for advice/recommendations about which wholesalers or distributors to approach (or stay away from)! Thanks! Kate

  • Diphtheria Response - Bangladesh

    A quick note to say thanks very much to Hasan - one of our Global Pharm-ers - who sent me the following help in a private message: "To purchase from local supplier there is no distributor in Bangladesh. The manufacturer has own distribution channel nationwide. So far my understanding you can purchase directly from the manufacturer." Thanks, Hasan - I really appreciate your support! :)
