PPRI Today

PPRI, the acronym for Pharmaceutical Pricing and Reimbursement Information, is a networking and information-sharing initiative on burning issues of pharmaceutical policies from a public health perspective. It involves a PPRI Members of almost 60 institutions (mainly competent authorities and third party payers) from the whole European Union, plus Albania, Canada, Iceland, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland and Turkey.

This sustainable networking exercise results from the PPRI Research project, which was performed from 2005 to 2007. In the course of the project the PPRI network was established, and a set of pharmaceutical indicators, filled with real data from 27 PPRI countries, as well as more than 20 country reports and brief overviews on the pharmaceutical systems (Country information) were produced.

In the on-going PPRI initiative, the networking of the EU Member States continues, via regular networking meetings and continuous sharing of relevant information for decision-making, including an up-date of country-specific information.

The PPRI folder summarises the key elements of the PPRI project. It can be used for dissemination purposes.
