DFID asked me to post this message concerning completing a survey on the
issue of tiered/differential pricing, taking account of Professor Yadav's
paper on the issue.

IGFAM is the UK Industry Government Forum on Access to Medicines established
to promote dialogue on how industry and government can work together to
promote access to medicines in developing countries. More details on IGFAM
are provided at http://www.dfid.gov.uk/Global-Issues/Emerging-policy/IGFAM  

DFID, on behalf of IGFAM, commissioned Professor Prashant Yadav of
MIT-Zaragoza to review current knowledge about differential pricing, its
current prevalence and to suggest ways in which it might be encouraged in
such a way as to enhance access to medicines in low and middle income
developing countries. 

IGFAM is interested to solicit the views of stakeholders and other
interested parties on Professor Yadav's paper as a means of stimulating
debate on the issue of differential pricing, and on policies which
governments, donor organisations and industry could adopt to facilitate
access to medicines to poor patients in developing countries. The full paper
and a summary are available at
http://www.dfid.gov.uk/Global-Issues/Emerging-policy/IGFAM/Policy-Issues-and
-Discussion-Papers 

We would therefore be very grateful if you could take a little time (less
than fifteen minutes) to complete the
<http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W7XZBMF> survey at
<http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W7XZBMF>
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W7XZBMF 

Please feel free to add your own comments and suggestions in the space
provided in the survey. 

The deadline for completing the survey is 14 November. 

We will then publish a report based on the responses by the end of November.

Best wishes
