Iraq to introduce new pricing system for pharmaceuticals
According to <i>Al-Sabaah</i> newspaper, the Iraqi Ministry of Health announced that it is willing to soon impose a new system to price pharmaceuticals at the public pharmacies in the country in cooperation with the Pharmacists Association.
According to the new system, each pharmacist is obliged to put a list of prices for all pharmaceutical products in his pharmacy. Pharmacies, which sell for prices higher than the determined process, will be subject to suspension for a certain period of time. The new system assures equal and big supply of pharmaceutical products at all Iraqi pharmacies, and thus, prices might decrease.
