This chapter examines the local and community institutions that influence technological development and markets for the pharmaceutical industry. It investigates the role of cities and localized production in the wider context of the distribution of medicines, changing global regulation, and knowledge production and national pressures for redistributive health politics. It also explores the political philosophies and local context that undergird market exchange and suggests that the regulation of production, delivery, and consumption influence the markets in distinct spatial, temporal, and historical ways.

Keywords:   pharmaceutical industry, technological development, markets, cities, localized production, redistributive health politics, political philosophies
