(2007; 35 pages)

Abstract

In 2006 Health Action International’s Coordinating Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (AIS-LAC) undertook a survey measuring medicine prices, availability, affordability and component costs in Peru, using the World Health Organization and Health Action International (WHO/HAI) price measurement methodology. The purpose of the study was to measure the price people pay for medicines, and their availability, in various sectors and regions of the country as well as the government procurement price, the affordability of standard treatments for patients on low wages, and all the costs in the supply chain from the manufacturer to the patient (taxes, mark-ups etc).
