Working as a pharmacist in a developing country is a huge challenge. Drugs are expensive and scarce, so this is an excellent opportunity to understand more about the limitations and creativity needed to treat a wide range of pathologies and tropical disease.

It is also the chance to learn more about the global challenge to define the role a pharmacist plays in patient care. Unlike home you are likely to be involved in everything from ward rounds to making the hospitals own supply of paracetamol. 

Unfortunately cost, distance and a lack of education in resource-poor countries means patients regularly present themselves with diseases or pathologies that have advanced to a critical stage. The chance to witness and help treat these conditions will undoubtedly teach you new skills and enhance your understanding of disease progression.
