AbstractThis report presents the results of an assessment to measure transparency in the pharmaceutical sector in Pakistan. National transparency assessment is the beginning of a process aimed at bringing about desirable and sustainable changes in the governance of the sector. It provides a comprehensive picture of the level of transparency and the potential vulnerability to corruption of the eight essential functions of the pharmaceutical sector, namely: Registration of Medicines, Licensing of Pharmaceutical Establishments, Inspection and Market Control of Medicines, Medicines Promotion Control, Control of Clinical Trials, Selection of Medicines, Procurement of Medicines and Distribution of Medicines. The results of this assessment will inform the development and implementation of a national good governance for medicines programme in Pakistan
