About this book

Medicines are vital in improving patient health outcomes and pharmaceutical policy is a fundamental component of any health system. However, the global pharmaceutical policy is ever-evolving and data and quality ‘research-based information’ in this field are scarce. This book fills this gap and provides up-to-date empirical information and evidence-based synthesis. It focuses on pertinent key issues in global pharmaceutical policy including medicines safety, generic medicines, pharmaceutical supply chain, medicines financing, access and affordability of medicines, rational use of medicines, pharmacy health services research and access to vaccines and biological products. Featuring policy case studies from varied countries such as Mexico, Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, and Pakistan, this book comprises a valuable and comprehensive resource for students, funders, policymakers, academics, and researchers interested in this field.

Reviews

“The audience includes students, faculty, researchers, policymakers, and funders interested in pharmaceutical global policy. According to the reviewer, health professionals would also find this book helpful. … No similar book exists that addresses the complexity of access, safety, and medication use. This book presents concise content that illustrate the myriad of factors that impact pharmaceutical policy.” (Carole A. Kenner, Doody's Book Reviews, September 4, 2020)
