Illnesses and diseases may need medical attention and in some cases medicines to be taken. Medicines are vital to health problems and diseases; they could have a negative outcome if not used rationally.
Inappropriate utilization of medicines by the health care as well as the community at large is not very uncommon.
We are a group of healthcare professionals appointed by the Directorate of Pharmacy and the WHO (country office in Sudan) to promote rational use of medicines through publications. Our aim is to educate ourselves, our patients and citizens on Rational Use of Medicine (RUM).
Please donʹt take the word for what the abbreviation means.
We need to appreciate the rationale behind RUM, join hands and collaborate as one team. Only then, we will succeed to ensure proper use of medicines, reduce irrational use, save money and even SAVE LIVES. If we are devoted and I believe we are… we will make it work.
