Getting medicines to the poor: solving the logistics challenge

Why can Coca-Cola get to rural communities and essential health supplies can't? Join our online debate on how to address global health supply chain challenges, Thursday 18 July at 1pm BST
eMedToday's insight:

One particular example has been the development of telemedicine."
