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 the data and the 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. This book 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 the access to vaccines and biological products. The issues related to public participation in regard to access to medicines and the pharmaceutical policy case studies from countries such as Mexico, Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, and Pakistan are also discussed. The book is a one-point resource for students, funders, policymakers, academics, and researchers interested in this field.
