Drug association seeks industry consensus to reach agreement with govt

History

The Association of Innovative Pharmaceutical Manufacturers (AIPM) wants to reach an agreement with the government on improving the level of healthcare in Hungary, the association's new chairman Zoltán Jakab said in an interview in Tuesday's issue of business daily Világgazdaság. Hungarian drugmakers will have to band together to reach a mid-term agreement with the government, Jakab said, adding that it was hoped an accord could be reached on the matter with the National Association of Hungarian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers (MAGyOSz) and the Association of Generic Pharmaceutical Manufacturers. Spending on healthcare in Hungary is about 4% of GDP, well under the 6% average for the Visegrád Group, he said.
