The History Trust pharmacy goal is to illuminate historical lessons on human resources for health and development. Commissioned papers will analyze the development of professions and educational institutions, the concentration on technologically-based vertical disease control programs, intersections with sustained health systems, and examine, whenever feasible, historical developments in developing regions.
