In 1990 and 1993, studies on the pharmaceutical sector were carried out in Ghana with technical support by the Ghana branch of the International Network for Rational Use of Drugs (INRUD). After the inception of the GNDP a baseline study of the pharmaceutical sector was undertaken in 1998. This covered rational use of medicines, procurement and financing medicine requirements. In 2000 another study on knowledge, attitudes, practices and beliefs (KAPB) on community use of medicines was carried out.
Annex 2 contains the results of several previous surveys carried out in the pharmaceutical sector between 1990 and 2000.
