Abstract:

As this concise case study demonstrates, a well-conceptualized and implemented study tour can be a strategic and powerful tool for developing capacity. As part of the USAID-funded Health Policy Project's multifaceted programming in Afghanistan, staff from the Afghan government’s General Director of Pharmaceutical Affairs undertook a five-day study tour to engage with peers in Turkey. They they learned how to design and create relevant strategies, services and partnerships, with a focus on the private sector. Many ways forward emerged that can realistically support a financially sustainable national supply of key pharmaceuticals—many manufactured in Afghanistan.
