Health technology innovation to improve access and availability of essential medicines in South Africa
Johannesburg, South Africa—Management Science for Health (MSH), an international nonprofit dedicated to saving lives by building strong health systems in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities, today presented the government of South Africa with the source code for RxSolution®, an electronic pharmaceutical management system designed to manage medicine supplies from procurement to dispensing.
Today, April 27, 2014, marks the 20th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s election to the presidency of South Africa, in what was the first fully free and representative democratic election in that nation. His election secured the dismantling of the poisonous system of apartheid that permeated all of life in South Africa. Mandela’s extraordinary leadership made possible not only the end of apartheid, but a new flowering of reconciliation and unity.
MSH is deeply saddened by the loss of Nelson Mandela (“Madiba”), South Africa’s iconic first black president who fought to overthrow the oppression of apartheid. Madiba’s unwavering commitment to reconciliation, peace, and human dignity were hallmarks of his legendary “long walk to freedom.” In 1993, he shared the Nobel Peace Prize.
In later years after his retirement, Mandela revealed that his son and daughter-in-law had died due to HIV & AIDS and became a courageous advocate, defying the government’s denial of the epidemic.
