Pharmaceutical Innovation

What is the action guide about?

The pharmaceutical innovation guide provides strategies for increasing access to medicines through a continuum of increasingly complex actions – from short-term actions to improve access, to the local manufacture of drugs, to development of novel drugs. The guide assists in establishing national priorities and goals for pharmaceutical innovation, based on a country’s capacities and needs.
