A summer school on pharmaceutical pricing – the first of its kind – helped train high-level civil servants in the WHO European Region responsible for shaping and implementing policies on pricing medicines.

The Austrian Health Institute organized the five-day course, which ran from the 29th August to 2nd September, and 36 participants from 20 countries learnt about medicine pricing across Europe, funding and reimbursement models, methods for comparing and analysing prices, and the benefits and limitations of various policies.
