    Australians have enjoyed universal drug coverage for more than 60 years. In establishing the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) in the late 1940s, Australia effectively signaled affordable access to medicines as a national health policy priority. More than 20 years ago Australia took another bold step – becoming the first national pharmaceutical coverage program to introduce a comprehensive “fourth hurdle” process for formulary decision-making.

    In this presentation Dr Ruth Lopert will present an overview of Australia’s National Medicines Policy (2000) – addressing responsible regulation, affordable access, and rational use – and reflecting on the experience of the past two decades, will highlight some of the achievements to date and challenges ahead.
