To assess the effect of local medicine production, Health Action International (HAI) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have developed a methodology to measure and compare the price and availability of locally produced and imported medicines. The methodology was adapted from the regular WHO/HAI methodology, then pilot tested in Tanzania and Ethiopia.
Governments, academics and others are encouraged to undertake a survey and make the findings public so researchers and policy-makers can learn more about the impact of local production on availability and prices. The methodology will be available on this page once finalised. If you would like to receive a copy of this methodology manual via email, please click here.
