Conclusions
• Application of modern marketing methods can
well lead to improve access to veterinary drugs
and vaccines in Africa.
• Most important is to understand the real needs
of farmers and veterinarians and to respect
these needs in all marketing aspects,
summarized under the “4 Ps”.
• Marketing of veterinary drugs and vaccines is
not exclusively done by pharmaceutical
companies, but is the consequence of the
interaction of public services, private companies
and the industry.
