  1. Drug retailer training : experiences from Nepal.

    Article - En anglais

    Sale of modern medicines by untrained peddlers, general merchants, and other drug sellers is common throughout the developing world.

    Drug sellers operating in the « informal sector » are often the first source of health care outside the home.

    Reasons given by patients for using private drug sellers include expediency, convenience, efficacy of the medicines, dependability of supply, and reasonable cost.

    At the same time, self-medication through private drug sellers can be ineffective, wasteful, and at times distinctly harmful.
