Background. Despite many positive developments in the Armenian pharmaceutical sector, some challenges still remain. These are lack of access to medicines, an inadequate drug quality assurance system, irrational prescribing and use. Many factors contribute and a lack of transparency should also be an issue of concern because bad practices can waste.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
