When to use This is a tool to assess the situation analysis of the pharmaceutical sector in a holistic approach. It has been developed and tested by Global Fund and WHO and is being used to identify the strengths and areas which need to be supported in the pharmaceutical sector. During the Global Fund proposal development, this tool needs to be filled in complementarity with disease specific country profile tools.
