The study on the prices of medicines in Ethiopia was jointly conducted by the Pharmaceuticals Administration and Supplies Service (PASS) of the Federal Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) from 15 September to 15 October 2004.
The survey was carried out in four regions of the country: Tigray, Amhara, Oromia and Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region (SNNPR) as well as in the capital city, Addis Ababa.
The fieldwork was based on standardized international methodology jointly developed by WHO and Health Action International (HAI). The main objective of the study was to find out the price and availability of selected medicines as well as affordability of cost of treating common diseases to low- income people in Ethiopia and recommend appropriate policy actions for improvement.
