Abstract

This policy brief is one of a series on addressing market and policy failures in the pharmaceutical sector that was prepared for the Austrian EU Presidency. It explores the most frequently applied policies for new high-priced medicines as well as some alternative approaches. In each case, the strengths and limitations are assessed and options for improvement are studied.
