The potential impact of any new antimalarial can only be fully realized if its introduction is supported by appropriate materials to help facilitate correct administration and adherence to the dosing schedule.
In collaboration with in-country partners MMV has invested significant resources in designing and testing packaging and visual aids to help ensure that the drug administration process is clearly understood by both patients and health workers.
"By listening to the voices of patients and healthworkers who use medicines in the field, we improve our understanding of the ‘human factors’ that can increase the impact of correctly used drugs – and we adapt our materials accordingly."
