Atieno Ojoo, Technical Officer, Medicines and Nutrition Centre, UNICEF Supply Division, has devoted her career to making medicines for children better, more easily delivered and more simply administered.  In this video, she tells the story: from no child-sized HIV medicines available in Kenya, through design of solid, oral dosage forms, cooperating with WHO, MSF and UNICEF, to working with UNICEF on the Better Medicines for Children project.
