One of our activities as a WHO Collaborating Centre according to the Terms of Reference is to “further develop and refine the methodological framework for indicators to measure, compare and benchmark pharmaceutical policies, in coordination with the WHO database development process”.

We have been working on developing and refining indicators for analyzing pharmaceutical policies (e.g. PPRI indicators and, in an integrative approach to cover both the out-patient and in-patient sectors, the PHIS indicators – full version and short list).

The PHIS indicators are integrated in the database (see below).
