Policy Options for Formulary Development in Middle-income Countries

Consulting Reports from Office of Health Economics

Abstract: PhRMA commissioned OHE Consulting to explore options and recommend methods that could help middle-income countries efficiently and effectively identify medicines for formulary inclusion. This report presents a framework for developing medicines formularies which combines macro-level decision making factors (focusing on the health system organisation and its priority setting), and micro-level factors (looking at intervention-specific effects) to determine the overall value of medicines. In a susbequent publication (click [here]( https://www.ohe.org/publications/policy-options-formulary-development-middle-income-countries-mexico-case-study#overlay-context=news)) we apply this framework to analyse the Mexican decision making process for the inclusion of a new health treatment in the positive list. We propose a series of recommendations that could improve the efficiency of the Mexican decision making process.
