  • In most countries, high medicine prices are a consequence of high prices charged by manufacturers and/or high add-ons in the supply chain, such as wholesale and retail margins and government-imposed duties and taxes. Both of these factors, acting either singly or in combination, can substantially increase the final price of medicines to patients in both the public and private sectors. In the limited number of low- and middle-income countries for which data are available, private sector wholesale mark-ups range from 2% to 380%, whereas retail mark-ups range from 10% to 552% (4).

  • For each medicine, the availability is calculated as the percentage (%) of medicine outlets in which the medicine was found on the day of data collection. Price results are reported as median prices in the local currency and also as median price ratios (MPRs). The median price ratio compares local prices with a set of international reference prices (IRPs) reported by the US-based Management Sciences for Health (MSH), and is an expression of how much greater (or lower) the median local medicine price is than the international reference price.

  • The genus Camelus was probably among the last of the major domestic species to be put to regular use by man. There is a little direct evidence for an exact time of domestication, mainly because the camel has changed relatively little as a result of selection and, whereas it is possible at archaeological sites to observe the changes in other species, this is not the case for camels. Since the early camel owners were nomadic, they left few permanent mementoes of their presence. The most likely time of domestication, however, is about 4000 years BP (before present).

  • A major shift in the perception of the fundamentals of marketing is taking place. The shift is so dramatic that it can, no doubt, be described as a paradigm shift[21]. Marketing researchers have been passionately convinced about the paradigmatic nature of marketing mix management and the Four P model[22]. To challenge marketing mix management as the basic foundation for all marketing thinking has been as heretic as it was for Copernicus to proclaim that the earth moved[23, 24].

  • Nonetheless, film did not start out well meshed with human perceptual and cognitive systems. Instead, it has evolved slowly over the last 120 years. Early in the 20th century, frame presentation rates were increased to make the flicker of the successive images less aversive. At the same time cuts, dissolves, and fades were used to denote shots within the same scene, across scenes, and across larger filmsegments (acts), respectively. But later the use of dissolves and fades as visual cues to filmstructure was found to be largely unnecessary.

  • Local institutional investors in Brazil—pension funds and mutual funds—have been less active in the equity market. For instance, mutual funds’ asset allocation has been concentrated in safe and liquid assets such as government bonds and repo transactions. Pension funds, whose return target is typically set to achieve a certain spread over the rate of inflation in the context of a high short-term interest rate environment, tend to invest in inflation-linked bonds rather than equities.

People live longer and have fewer disabilities, have less functioning loss, and report themselves to be in better health. Over time there has been some reduction in risk from smoking and a lowering of cholesterol and average triglyceride levels. However, weight increase has been notable during this period.

  • This paper intends to use psychoanalysis to discover where and how the fascination of film is reinforced by pre-existing patterns of fascination already at work within the individual subject and the social formations that have moulded him. It takes as starting point the way film reflects, reveals and even plays on the straight, socially established interpretation of sexual difference which controls images, erotic ways of looking and spectacle.

  • There is a theoretical concern that women with a short menstrual cycle may ovulate very early in their cycle, putting them at risk of pregnancy if starting contraception as late as Day 5 or Day 7 (LNG-IUS). There is no strong evidence to support or refute the risk but some sources of patient information (e.g. FPA) advise additional contraception for women in this situation if they have a cycle shorter than 23 days. Faculty guidance on postnatal sexual and reproductive health includes recommendations on starting contraceptive methods after childbirth.

  • Targeting fuel refiners and importers: influencing fuel supply. Measures to influence fuel supply might involve subsidies and transfers for research, development and deployment, or regulations and standards for fuel quality. Such standards are most effective when they regulate performance criteria, rather than fuel composition per se. Targeting developers and planners: influencing the built environment. Urban form and design can influence how long average trips taken in urban areas need to be, and what modes of transport are viable.

Capital recovery is an estimate of the cost of replacing the capital investment for cattle housing, milking facilities, feed storage structures, manure handling and storage structures, feed handling equipment, tractors, trucks, and purchased dairy herd replacements used up in the annual production process, plus interest that the remaining capital could have earned in an alternative use.

  • In many countries, medicines are provided free to all patients in the public sector. Where this is the case, price data are not reported. In countries where medicines are only provided free to some groups of patients (e.g. children, the elderly), data on the price paid by those who are required to pay for their medicines are collected. In such cases, the price is the full price paid, even if patients themselves only pay part of this price. As indicated in Box 1.1, in WHO/HAI methodology medicine prices are reported as median price ratios or MPRs, which express median local...

  • To continue the flats and houses price data sets from 1994 to 1999 (latest year data available), the author sought to rebuild the pre-1995 LGA’s median prices from surburb prices. The Department of Human Services (Victoria) has documented the suburbs within each pre-1995 LGA. But reconstructing prices by LGA on the basis of this document proved not sufficiently accurate for the continuity of the flats and houses price data sets: comparison of the overlapping time period (1989-1994) showed material differences.

  • Our identiÖcation relies on the standard assumption in the tax evasion literature that re- ported income is equal to true income for wage earners. 6 We thus estimate the sensitivity of credit o§ered to income o§ the wage earners. Since one needs a certain amount of cash mechan- ically to service debt, the true income-to-credit relationship should be the same for individuals only di§ering as to self-employment or not.

  • • The quality of governance. Good governance is critical for sus- tainable development. 16 A growing body of evidence suggests that gender equality in rights and resources is associated with less corruption and better governance. Although the correlation between gender and corruption may reflect the exclusion of women from positions of power, and thus from the opportuni- ty to engage in corrupt practices, evidence from micro-level studies is consistent with the country-level correlation.

  • The reduction in fixed ICT spending is gradually exploited by the new and exist- ing firms, and the speed of adoption of the new possibility remains an unknown variable for us. It will depend on a number of macroeconomic and microeconomic factors and on policymaking as well. Moreover, it will be characterized by impor- tant strategic complementarities: adoption for a single firm is crucial if many firms are expected to adopt it, but it is not if they are not, which means that multiple equilibria could emerge (with slow or rapid adoption and with limited or deep adoption).
