Funding & Payment Structures

A WPC member survey was conducted in March-April 2021. The survey was designed to provide WPC members with a broad understanding of funding and formal payment structures for community pharmacy in each WPC country. The survey covered payments for dispensing, payments for pharmacy services, and other general or specific purpose payments from third parties (government or insurers) that are specific to community pharmacy. Responses were received from every WPC member country. Thank you to those who contributed to these responses.

A summary of the findings is available below, along with each country's raw, unedited response. Please contact individual WPC members directly to seek more detail on particular aspects of funding models.
