In December both the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association( IPHA) and Medicines for Ireland (MFI) signed Framework Agreements on the supply and pricing of medicines with the State.  These agreements set the reimbursement terms and conditions for all new and existing medicines – originator and generic, biosimilar, and hybrid medicines –  for the period 2021 –2025.

Fully understanding these Frameworks and their key implications will be of vital importance to anyone involved with pricing, reimbursement applications or indeed has a general interest in Market Access.  We’re delighted to welcome Brenda Dooley and Cillian Copeland from AXIS Consulting who will give a full breakdown of both the IPHA and MFI Frameworks along with the various changes they bring. 

This online briefing will be an essential event for anyone involved in the pharmaceutical industry, and is complimentary to active PMI members. 

You can download a copy of the IPHA Framework Agreement here and the MFI Framework Agreement here
