Evaluation of a pharmaceutical substitution policy in Chile

26 March, 2019

We have recently published an article in BMJ Global Health showing the evaluation of a substitution policy in Chile. This paper is a joint contribution between the Ministry of Health of Chile and the Department of Global Health of Boston University, which received the funding from PAHO and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research.

This project was a strong effort to evaluate health policy actions implemented during the last decade, that we hope would continue for other important policies in the country. We also highlight the use of interrupted time series analysis as a great tool to evaluate policies that have been already implemented.
