Title: Managing Pharmaceuticals in International Health
Year: 2004

Overview:

The ready availability of essential drugs to entire populations is a key 
determinant of public health in all countries. Addressing the great 
inequalities in drug supply is one of the major challenges in international 
health. 

This book aims to provide the student of international health with an 
introduction to the international pharmaceutical scene: Who are the key players 
and what are their roles? What has been achieved so far, and what remains to be 
done? What are the prospects for the future? 

The book should be of interest to all those who wish to learn more 
about an important area of international health. It will be of particular 
interest to those involved with the management of medicines at any level, and 
to those with an interest in improving access to medicines for all in a fair 
and equitable way.
