Abstract
This second meeting of the WHO/SEARO Working Group on Drug Financing was a follow-up to the first meeting held in Korat (Thailand) in November 1996. During these meetings, which it is planned to continue on a regular basis, members exchanged experiences on drug financing and policy. The overall objective of the discussions at the second meeting was to ensure that essential drugs are available at the various levels of primary health care at affordable costs. The specific objectives were to: 1. increase efficient use of the available budget; 2. find ways and means of increasing the health and drug budget; 3. identify policies and mechanism(s) for improving existing cost-sharing schemes in the Region; 4. identify policies and mechanism(s) to reduce the cost of production, distribution, and the price of drugs.
