Quotes from Clients.

Dr. Martin Kollman, Vice Chair of International Coalition for Trachoma Control (ICTC)

"We needed a strategy that would define a global coalition, unite and focus a diverse group of stakeholders and deliver results. Against this challenging back drop Ian Vale and John Batten at PMDC succeeded in ensuring we developed a consensus on our goals, how we would work together to achieve them and commit the resources required for success."
