On 20th July, 2016, IPHA and the Government concluded a four-year Framework Agreement on the Supply of Medicines to the public Health Services.   Under the Agreement, the pricing of medicines in Ireland was set to an average of 14 EU Member States each year along with significant price reductions on medicines.  Almost 12 months into this 4 year agreement, we discuss it’s impact and the future changes to the pharmaceutical industry.
