Differential pricing (DPR) is based on the economic concept of price discrimination. DPR is reported as a potential effective way to: (1) Improve access to medicines in lower income countries whilst maintaining welfare in higher income countries; (2) Preserve incentives for R&D through higher prices in high income countries. This study aimed to assess the current situation of DPR for pharmaceuticals in the European Union (EU).
