I am very pleased to introduce this Special Issue on Healthcare Policy, Financing & Economics. This Special Issue of the Open Pharmo-Economic Journal consists of five papers that address topics from different perspectives which should be of interest to healthcare policy makers, academic researchers and practitioners.

The symposium for this Special Issue was posted and advertised on a national scale. All of the papers for the symposium were subjected to blind, peer review and the authors revised the manuscripts in accordance with the Guest Editor’s and reviewers’ comments.

This special issue has articles from various countries such as India, Brazil, Canada & USA. We hope this Special Issue will be both interesting and provocative, and that the articles will provoke further research, case studies and demonstrations in the field of healthcare policy.
