January 2013

This paper summarises the findings of a brief political economy analysis of the procurement, supply and distribution of essential medicines in Malawi.

It uses a sectoral political economy framework that provides a more structured form of analysis, working through various stages, including identifying the nature of the problem to be addressed; diagnosing systemic features and key dynamics and incentives; and pinpointing policy options and feasible theories of change.
