Abstract: A detailed guide to the development of a national policy aimed at ensuring the availability, quality, safety, and efficacy of drugs and vaccines. Addressed to policy-makers and administrators, the book identifies and explains the many complex factors that must be considered when planning and implementing a national drug policy. Particular emphasis is placed on information that can help readers understand practical issues and anticipate problems, whether at the policy level within the country or concerning international drug marketing and supply. The book opens with a step-by-step explanation of the various components of a national drug policy. Other chapters concentrate on the specific issues that can influence the workability of a national drug policy, including legal issues, the impact of drug information and promotion on supply and use, and measures to promote safe and rational self-medication. The book concludes with brief information on the establishment of financial priorities, the importance of research and development, and opportunities for technical cooperation between countries
