Do the prices of medicines have to escalate?

  • In: P5 - Thinking the unthinkable on Thursday, 8 September 2005, 9:00-12:00
  • At: Cairo (Egypt) (2005)
  • Type: Presentation
  • By: DUKES, Graham (University of Oslo, Dept. of Pharmacotherapeutics, Oslo, Norway)
  • Abstract:

    The prices of medicines are commonly bewildering; in some markets the prices of individual medicines rise almost annually; in others cost increases are frequent, but mainly due to replacement with newer items; in some, where one is sufficiently insistent, prices are constant or fall. There is much elasticity and generally a wide margin of profit
