Medicines in Health Systems: Advancing access, affordability and appropriate use employs a health systems approach to provide an analysis of essential medicines in LMICs. Through the use of country case-studies, the Report evaluates the stated goals of medicines policies against their actual outcomes and implementation challenges. The Report also offers guidance and recommendations to inform, monitor, and appraise the inevitable reforms required to increase the availability of quality-assured, cost-effective medicines in resource-poor settings.

Medicines in Health Systems is intended for multiple stakeholders throughout the health system who are involved in the development, production, marketing, registration, selection, financing, procurement, distribution, prescribing, dispensing and use of medicines.
