E-DRUG: ITM course Pharmaceutical Policies in Health Systems:deadline 31/01

Dear E-Druggers,

This is a kind reminder of the second course on Pharmaceutical Policies in 
Health Systems, organized at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Belgium, in 
collaboration with the University of Western Cape, South Africa, that will take 
place -in English- in Antwerp from 30th May to 17th June 2022. Those interested 
can apply until the end of January.

Contents, eligibility criteria and practical details are available in our 


In short, the aim of this 3-week course is to enable participants to develop a 
general understanding of the individual components of pharmaceutical systems, 
and of the whole system they constitute together; and a practical understanding 
of those specific components on/by which they may have a direct impact, 
according to their role, responsibility and context. In addition, participants 
who are specialists in specific fields will be guided to frame their knowledge 
within a multidisciplinary perspective. The short course is targeting students 
from high-, middle- and low-income countries working at different levels in the 
Ministry of Health, health programmes, regulatory agencies, NGOs, global health 
initiatives and other donor agencies, procurement, health insurance, etc.. 
Importantly, the course is not only targeting specialists in specific 
pharmaceutical topics (who are welcome). Participants and facilitators will 
benefit from the rich exchange of experience between professionals bringing the 
perspective of different expertise, roles and levels in the health systems.

In 2021, the teaching faculty included Cécile Macé, Veronika Wirtz, Nondumiso 
Ncube, Hazel Bradley, Els Torreele, Wilbert Bannenberg, Katrina Perehudoff, 
Klara Tisocki and Kiu Siang Tay, Ghamal Khalafallah, Céline Caillet, Jan 
Jacobs, Brecht Ingelbeen, Koen Peeters, Patricia Kingori and René Gerrets, Jo 
Robays and Raffaella Ravinetto.

Pharmaceutical public health is an emerging field in global health, and global 
health needs a generation of policy-makers who understand the relevance of 
coherent and integrated pharmaceutical systems, thus we hope you will find this 
course of interest.

With best wishes,
