The pharmaceuticals price has a great influence on the healthy and safety of the people. At present, veritable pharmaceuticals quality and reasonable pharmaceuticals price are in urgent request. However it is the fact that pharmaceuticals price always departs from the value widely and seems deceptively high. This kind of unreasonable price is just the retail price of pharmaceuticals, which is much higher than the actual value. Specifically to say there are large gaps between the cost of production and the actual producer price, the actual producer price and the wholesale price, the wholesale price and the retail price.In many foreign countries, a separate system between the medical treatment and the pharmaceuticals circulation has been set up, on condition that there are high pharmaceuticals price level and a comprehensive security system of medical treatment. Perhaps it can be a valuable reference to us. But the specific conditions are not the same in different countries, therefore effective solutions can only come from careful analysis of the present situation.There are three key points in the solution of unreasonable pharmaceuticals price:1. The reformation of pharmaceuticals circulation is needed, because, the circulation process keeps on too much profit.2. A separate system between the medical treatment and the pharmaceuticals circulation should be carried out, because supplying the treatment expense of the hospitals by the medicine selling undoubtedly leads to high price level.3. A price-making system, which combines the government's function on price with the market's, is necessary, because, as the pharmaceuticals are particular commodities the market should not freely determine the price, while government's control on the price also has many shortcomings that have made the medicine expensive.Due to its complexity and particularity, this problem is not easy to solve. The goal of this thesis is to investigate the elements that influence the pharmaceuticals price, analyze their existence foundation or social backgrounds, and try to put forward some valuable advises for this problem's solution.
