HPI International Research

To help improve medicines situations for low and middle-income country populations across the world, the group leads and collaborates on major global medicines research activities. 


We founded and lead the global Medicines and Insurance Coverage (MedIC) Initiative; collaborate on the development of practical, valid methods to assess medicines situations; provide technical support in the design, development, and implementation of medicines policy and other intervention research studies in health systems; and support the dissemination of global medicines research.
