1. Aim and objectives

The aim of the workshop was to review the results of the different research projects, to solve methodological problems and to prepare a plan for the finalization and dissemination of the research findings.

The specific objectives were:

• To provide methodological support to the research teams in order to improve the research findings.

• To review the results in relation to the overall research objectives, namely:

- to identify strengths, weaknesses, and political dimensions of pharmaceutical policy formulation and implementation within each country;

- to propose explanations for cross national variations in performance; and

- to propose effective strategies, both national and international, that can improve pharmaceutical policy implementation.

• To assess the two methods used in the research: standardized indicators and political mapping in terms of usefulness, reliability, ease of implementation, etc.

• To prepare a plan for the next steps, including the dissemination of the findings.
