First pharmaceutical chain comes to Afghanistan

786 pharmacyAfghanistan’s only branded pharmacy recently opened in Kabul. The 786 Pharmacy offers credible health advice and is a trusted source of genuine medicines.

Counterfeit medicines are a big problem in Afghanistan. Not only are they often ineffective, but can also be dangerous. It is estimated that people in Kabul spend millions of dollars on counterfeit medicines each year.

786 Pharmacy might not have been possible without a grant from the Afghanistan Business Innovation Fund (ABIF). ABIF is a private sector investment fund, supported by the UK and Australia, to promote innovative business ideas. With the help of an ABIF grant, 786 Pharmacy hopes to open up to 20 branches, initially close to public hospitals and other areas of high demand.

In addition, 786 Pharmacy is working to develop a mobile phone-based product verification service. This will help customers check whether the medicines they purchase are the real thing, and not potentially dangerous fakes.
