14. What is the price charged for a [unit] of [medicine]?
Asks about 10 types of common medicines
For this section, please take a look at the anthropometrists handbook on collecting prices
The specified types (units) of medicines are determined by those that are most common,
however in reality at the commune health station they may be different from those written
in the questionnaire. For example Ampicillin used to collect in the questionnaire is for 1
card of 10 capsules, 250mg each produced domestically in Vietnam. But, in reality at a
commune health station, Ampicillin is sold in 5 pill cards of 250 mg produced in Vietnam.
in this cases we should calculate the equivalent price for 10 pills if the quality and units of
the two types are the same. If the price of 5 pills is 10,000 dong, then the price of 10
would be 20,000 dong.
In the case that the quality is different, the country of production is different, and the units
are different, try to come up with an equivalent in order to calculate the price. For
example, if the clinic has vitamin A on capsules of 100.000 UI with the price of 2000
dong per pill, then the price of a 50.000 UI would be 1000 dong
