Dispensing rational medicines in Gambia

The Gambia is in the midst of a public health crisis, with a shortage of skilled health workforce and a rapid increase of counterfeit medicines has left the poverty-stricken Gambians with no access to quality medical care. 

In recognition of the problems The Gambians are facing, IMANA Medical Relief (IMR) in partnership with The Oasis Initiative organized their first-ever medical mission to the country. Dr. Ghalib Abbasi, Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) from Houston traveled with a five-member volunteer team on an IMR sponsored mission — SaveGambia; to the capital city, Banjul from Jan. 24 – Feb. 1, 2020.
