Resumen
In many countries, the relative roles of the public and private sectors are undergoing change. This is true for the pharmaceutical sector as well as for the overall health sector. It is essential that changes in public-private roles are designed so as to promote drug accessibility and rational drug use. This document is targeted at policy-makers and managers at country, regional and international levels. It draws on experience and analysis to provide a practical guide to how public and private roles may affect drug accessibility and rational drug use. This document addresses seven main questions: 1. How is the pharmaceutical market organized and what makes it different from other markets? 2. What are the essential responsibilities of the state in the pharmaceutical sector? 3. What is the current public-private mix in pharmaceutical markets? 4. Can market mechanisms help to improve efficiency and ensure access to essential drugs in the public sector? 5. What mechanisms best promote the availability, affordability and rational use of drugs in the private sector? 6. What role should the government play in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals? 7. What capacities are needed to manage changing roles and how can these capacities be enhanced?
