The MSH’s East African Drug Seller Initiative (EADSI) aimed to increase access to essential medicines in underserved areas through involvement of the private sector. EADSI’s goal in Uganda was to increase access to quality essential medicines and pharmaceutical services in underserved areas through accreditation of private drug sellers. By adapting Tanzania’s accredited drug dispensing outlet (ADDO) model, Uganda successfully launched the Accredited Drug Seller program in Kibaale district in November 2009.
