Reports

We provide country-specific information in different formats (extensive report vs. information at a glance) about the pharmaceutical systems (out-patient, in-patient, both sectors) in several countries. PPRI and PHIS country reports were written by country representatives (usually staff of public authorities for pricing and reimbursement, involvement of hospital pharmacists and researchers possible) and were reviewed by the WHO Centre staff. These documents arising from PPRI and PHIS are considered as official documents of the countries.
