The provision of essential drugs and the involvement of various potential and existing health care providers (e.g. teachers and traditional healers) are two important primary health care strategies.
One local group that is already actively supplying the medication needs of the community is the patent medicine vendors (PMVs), but the formal health establishment often views their activities with alarm.
One way to improve the quality of the PMVs'contribution to primary care is through training, since no formal course is required of them before they are issued a license by government.
