WEBINAR: How Good is Your Pharmaceutical Expenditure Data?
Improving pharmaceutical-sector financing in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is essential to ensuring universal access to pharmaceutical products and services. In many LMICs, pharmaceuticals are primarily financed inefficiently and inequitably. On Tuesday, December 13, 2022, USAID MTaPS and the USAID LHSS Project collaborated in drafting and piloting a resource to help countries increase the accuracy of their pharmaceutical expenditure data. The session convened global and country-level expert panelists to share insights and lessons on producing pharmaceutical expenditure data and promoting its use for decision-making.
