MSH-BD staff boosted from senior leadership team’s visit

An team of three senior leadership members of MSH comprised of Dr. Aday Adetosoye, Vice President, Global Health Program Delivery Group; Ms Colleen McGuffin, Chief People and Culture Officer; and Dr. Dan Schwarz, Associate Vice President, Global Health Systems Innovation, visited Bangladesh from 20 to 24 August 2022 to meet the staff members of MSH’s four country projects, including BHB. The trip was full of activities ranging from a town hall meeting with MSH staff members; partner and donor meetings, including with BHB’s donor, FCDO; and a visit to a model pharmacy. The team called on the Director General of Drug Administration and his staff to get their views on BHB’s collaboration on the medicine shops’ GPP accreditation program, information technology capacity building, and other activities. The Director General said that without this partnership, the retail pharmaceutical sector in Bangladesh would still be in the same unregulated and disorderly situation. The team also met with the leadership at PCB, one of BHB’s major partners. The leadership’s visit to Bangladesh was immensely successful and left the Bangladesh staff members with good memories and encouragement and further reinforced our project partnerships.
