Pharmaceutical Pricing and Reimbursement Information

Since October 2011 the PPRI website is no longer maintained.

Please refer from now on to the website of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Pharmaceutical Pricing and Reimbursement Policies:


One of the core deliverables of the PPRI project was the PPRI glossary. It aimes at ensuring consistency in the terminology of the PPRI Pharma Profiles as well as in the PPRI report. The PPRI glossary was developed by the Austrian Health Institute (GÖG/ÖBIG) with inputs by other organisations. Special acknowledgements are given to following organisations: National Centre for Pharmacoeconomics (Dublin), OECD, SOGETI and WHO Europe.

In the course of another EU-funded project, the Pharmaceutical Health Information System – PHIS, the PPRI glossary was updated and extended with commonly used terms for the in-patient sector. In order to guarantee consistency when using the defined terms, we ask you to visit the glossary on the PHIS website.
