Multi-stakeholder process A commitment to engage Received a commitment from the MoH in early 2008 to participate in MeTA Participation of public and private sectors and civil society in MeTA global launch of May, 2008 A commitment to proceed Birth of the Grupo Impulsor, June 2008 MeTA Peru National Forum, November, 2008 Consolidation of Executive Committee and National Council between November, 2008 and February, 2009 Refinement of MeTA Peru national work plan, February, 2009-February, 2010 A commitment to implement Executive Committee continues to meet weekly to make decisions relative to work plan implementation National Council meets every two months to assess progress on work plan
Major achievements and successes • All sectors remain at the table! • Continuous nature of multi stakeholder process • Communication has changed as a result of MeTA • Progress on key areas of implementation • Price Observatory • Public purchases study • Development of Centers for Medicines Information • Agreement on key areas to be implemented • Development of a national generics policy • Development of baseline data studies, i.e., pharmaceutical sector scan and multi stakeholder process evaluation • Development of software for price observatory • Development of Website/communications plan
Overall challenges • The multi stakeholder process takes time • Sectors are working together which may have never had a history of collaboration • Without trust and relationships it is impossible to move the agenda forward. • Must adapt to new structures, i.e., Executive Committee, National Council, administrative and technical secretariats • The Executive Committee and National Council lead this process and not the Technical or Administrative Secretariats • This means that there are many minds at work and the Technical and Administrative Secretariats are beholden to the will of these voluntary bodies and not the other way around
Lessons Learned • The multi stakeholder process may be a useful manner of creating transparency and improving decision-making in the pharmaceutical sector. However, • Investments in relationship- and trust-building are essential • Such a process is difficult anywhere in the world, but may be particularly challenging in environments whose governments have been historically centralized. • While transparency in information about medicines and process is important, we must be careful that the mechanisms put in place do not create greater bureaucracies • There is value in a shared space between civil society, government and private sector to discuss common issues of concern.
