The Bamako Initiative was launched in September 1987 as a means of increasing access to essential drugs through community participation in revolving drug funds. The response of the public health community was highly critical of the Initiative. Issues raised included equity and access; problems of integration, management and logistics; the relative importance given to drugs; and sustainability and dependency.
