After talks that came to fruition last week, the government and pharmaceutical companies agreed on this measure and have been working since then on setting up the prices at the rates of early this month without changes until the date agreed upon.

In a recent statement, the chambers of this sector said that they told the Secretariat of Trade of the National Government that the companies associated to each of the chambers have shown their willingness to set up prescription medicine prices of all segments at the rate of Monday, November 1.

“In view of this, every associated laboratory will exercise the power of individually joining this initiative. The pharmaceutical industry in Argentina keeps its goodwill and collaboration with the government,” they said.

For his part, the director of the Pharmaceutical Professionals Center (CEPROFAR), Ruben Sajem, highlighted in an interview with Telam news agency the support for the State’s regulation and intervention so that medicines can be accessible to the entire population.

We went through times when people had to buy three medicines but had to choose one because they could not afford the others. We do not want to go back to those times, he said.
