Abstract

This two day meeting brought together drug utilisation researchers from across Africa. The purpose was to share current drug utilisation (DU) research findings to further DU research across Africa including the development of a medicines utilisation research group. This led to the formation of the MURIA (Medicine Utilisation Research in Africa) Group, with a tentative vision and mission as well as the first planned research methodology training course and a symposium in Botswana later in the year. Future research projects were also planned including studies on drug utilisation of ARVs in Botswana and across Africa as well as ways to enhance the appropriate use of antibiotics and increase generic utilisation.
