Average price of imported medicines up to 2,140 rubles in Russia
An average price of imported medicines, which have analogs in Russia, grew to 2,140 rubles in the first half of this year, as compared to 1,395 rubles the year ago, deputy head of the Federal Health and Social Development Supervisory Service Yelena Telnova said at the Tuesday roundtable of the Russian Pharmaceutical Association.
“We have submitted the data to governors,” she said.
Domestically produced medicines amounted to only 5% of all vital preparations in January-June 2009. “The share of domestic medicines is on decline. It is down to 1% in certain regions,” Telnova said.
A total of 64 billion rubles have been spent on medicines for benefit holders this year. “This is 30% more than last year,” she said.
