Asia’s pharma markets are extremely complex with each country governed by very different healthcare policies, reimbursement schemes, unique pricing, with large risks involved in entering the market, particularly with high priced, specialty drugs/therapeutics. Once way is to overcome this is to out-license, which cuts risks but can also decrease profits. There is also no guarantee that this will lead to success.

3rd Annual Pharma Market Access Asia 2017 brings pharma and industry together to navigate the complex environments and lessons learnt from successfully and profitable market entries for orphan drugs, high priced therapeutics, generics, biosimilars and more.

“Excellent event! Looking at multiple perspective from patients, policy maker, prescriber, provider, and payers. Well done to the producer and organizing team!”
Sebastien Boisseau, Market Access Director, Mundipharma

  • Country Case Studies - On market access by Pharma companies

  • Pricing and Reimbursement - Strategies for improving market access
