Abstract

Various models and suggestions have been proposed over the years as to how the private sector can become involved in pharmaceutical service delivery in the public sector, with particular focus on improving service delivery and compliance with Good Pharmacy Practice (GPP). Most of these have not seen any fruition due to a number of reasons, amongst others, affordability to government and accessibility of services offered to public sector patients, particularly those from informal settlements.
