Undoubtedly the issue of increased access to drugs is am important one,and as has been at top of developing states agenda with increasing enthusiasm.While many of the problems cited in this article apply across the board,possible solutions may not.Moreover,while the idea that empowering the poor does carry a lot of merit.It is still ambiguous in its assistance and unhelpful to those who urgently require treatment.This is not to undermine the power that empowerment endows upon people.The issue here is facilitating treatment for someone in need of it presently to enable them to better the quality of their or their children's lives. More so,as is the reality of many developing states,especially the poor,empowerment is only useful to the extent that the empowered can exercise it,a problem further compounded by illiteracy, and, the futility of seeking out the individuals or institutions to hold to account when patients are too sickly to or even dead.Therefore,while ideologically it is a understandable approach to ensuring treatment,it does not deal with the real problem that is, those who are already tasked with ensuring these services.A possible solution to this would be the part privatization of Health systems,performance linked remuneration.
