Quality problems in drug purchasing by Indian state agencies lie at the intersection of the field of drug quality in India and the field of government contracting in India. Improvements in the procedures used by state agencies when buying drugs can improve the working of public health care programs, and potentially also influence drug quality in the private market. The first step towards policy analysis and reform lies in careful description of how drug purchase works at present. In this paper, we describe how some elements of the Indian state buy drugs.
