Abstract: A detailed yet highly readable explanation of laws and legal frameworks necessary to assure that safe, effective and inexpensive drugs of good quality reach consumers in developing countries. Addressed to policy makers and administrators, the book provides the basis for a sound understanding of each step involved in the formulation and implementation of an effective national drug policy. The 14 chapters range in focus from procedural steps in the formulation and finalization of a law, through guidelines for defining the scope of a law, to legal measures for controlling the advertising, marketing, sales and distribution of pharmaceuticals. To help regulatory officials profit from past experiences and mistakes, the book also features case studies illustrating the practical problems that can arise with certain components of drug legislation
