Women and children are the ultimate beneficiaries of WHP because they gain the most when small drugshops are transformed into quality pharmacies. Why? Because in many countries, the vast majority of women and children seek healthcare in the private, informal sector and improving the quality of that care can prevent many maternal and child deaths.
