Pavlo Lukashevych, Head of Hospital Medicinal Product Marketing Department at Farmak:
In a tough economic situation, growth in prices for medicines has become an important social problem of today. Therefore, we give special attention to affordability of medicinal products. We exemplified this as the difference in price for medicinal products manufactured by Farmak and competitors during the last 5 months. The price analysis shows that the cost of sugar-reducing agents and medicinal products for treatment of sugar diabetes complications manufactured by Farmak remained the same, while the cost of foreign counterparts grew by 30-65%. It is our belief that our approach towards pricing testifies to social responsibility of our Company in currently difficult times.
We should remind that since 1999 Farmak has been working together with Eli Lilly, US-based multinational corporation, the world leader in development and manufacture of insulins (Farmak manufactures insulins under Farmasulin trademark). At the end of 2011, the Company started manufacturing Farmasulins in-house using cartridges, the US partner’s technology.
In 2013, Farmak held 33.5% share in hospital sales of insulins in Ukraine in monetary terms (end-user prices).
