GLOBAL BRIDGE CONSULTING
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Covid-19 pandemic was a turning point in our engagement with our community, major health disparity and perceptions were uncovered as we went out to encourage uptake of the vaccine. Since then, we have established a partnership with community organizations as well as medical professionals of African descent in the United States and Africa.
Our role is to help pharmaceutical and healthcare companies develop a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategic plan. This reduces, and ultimately eliminates disparities by providing valuable input on DEI goals of companies we work with. This helps them to better design clinical trials, engage more diverse patients and principal investigators in the drug development process.
We are a certified minority business entity (MBE), member of the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council (NMSDC) and Historically Underutilized business (HUB) certified.

Pharmacy compounding is making a comeback, and pharmacists all over the world are excited to be part it and put their professional expertise to use.
Some medications are not commercially available or may be very expensive for some patients. A pharmacist with the right training and resources can compound certain drugs for a specific patient or an entire batch to be used in a hospital.
Our membership with a leading pharmacy-compounding organization in the United States gives us the ability to not only guide you through a step-by-step formulation process, product development, and literature, but also source the highest-quality active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients, and equipment needed to obtain optimal drug products.
The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) contains more than 4,000 drugs that can be compounded. This is especially useful in developing countries where some medicines—especially drugs for neglected diseases—are very scarce because they are not very profitable for Big Pharma. This is a huge opportunity for pharmacists to make a difference and increase their bottom line at the same time.
At Global Bridge, we understand the importance of having access to up-to-date guidelines on drug therapy and medical information in your practice or hospital system. Utilizing data and resources available in the United States, we can collaborate with the pharmacy and therapeutics committee (PTC) of your hospital or organization to develop a drug formulary based on the most recent guidelines.
We help our partners participate in training and workshops in the United States that fit their learning goals. In doing so, we equip them for world-class health-care delivery.
DRUG QUALITY CONTROL
Counterfeit and fake medicines are a growing trend especially in less regulated markets. In developing countries, the risk of getting caught and penalized for producing or selling fake medicines is low due to less regulation and oversight by authorities. Hundred of thousands of patients die every year from fake or counterfeit medicines.
Despite the emergence of new technology and on site quality control devices, there are still many limitations to the drugs that can be analyzed as well as the result that these services provide with regards to qualitative and quantitative analysis of drug samples.
Our partnership with reputable USFDA approved analytical laboratories enable us to test the authenticity of the drugs you market or dispense. We serve pharmacies, hospitals, wholesalers, governments and international health organizations.
