19 August 2019

The Ministry of Health Care and Antimonopoly Ministry discuss the possibility of expanding the list of drugs that suppliers bring to Belarus on a reference basis. This means that the wholesale price is fixed, based on how much the drug costs in the markets of other countries similar to ours. This year, this approach was applied to cancer and cardiovascular drugs. In some cases, the cost has decreased by almost a half.
