dc.description.abstractArmed with knowledge, textbooks, medical supplies, and mosquito repellant, Canadian pharmacists depart each year for international volunteer experiences in different areas of the world. Sub-Saharan Africa is a common destination for health care professionals, because of the high prevalence of disease and shortages of health care workers. 1 In recent years, pharmacists and student pharmacists have been working with local African organizations to optimize the distribution and provision of pharmacy-related services in this region. These volunteers bring particular knowledge, skills, and attitudes that can positively contribute to humanitarian efforts. Although many different types and durations of volunteer projects are available, this article focuses on pharmacists who take on medium- to longer-term assignments (minimum 4-week placements) in clinic and hospital settings.en_US
