Dr Petra Brhlikova has been researching into pharmaceutical regulation and access to medicines in developing countries. She is currently involved in the EU FP7 funded project Accessing Medicines in Africa and South Asia (AMASA). This project was stimulated by her earlier research on three pharmaceuticals in India and Nepal, under the project Tracing Pharmaceuticals in South Asia: regulation, distribution and consumption. Her research focuses on the regulation of pharmaceutical industry, such as standards of quality, and the intersection of economic and public health issues related to international harmonisation and enforcement of such regulations.
She previously held research and teaching positions at the Economics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and the Centre for International Public Health Policy and Global Public Health Unit (University of Edinburgh).
