“We have been actively cooperating with the Affordable Medicines Program since the program launch in 2017.

We manufacture insulin using the technology of the American company Eli Lilly, a world leader in this field. The majority of insulins supplied by Farmak is available under the program at no extra cost to the patient (a separate Insulin Reimbursement Program). This brings us closer to our goal of making treatment with world-class quality medicinal products available to every Ukrainian,” noted Volodymyr Kostiuk, JSC Farmak’s Chief Executive Officer.

Under the reimbursement program, patients with cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes mellitus or bronchial asthma can be provided with medicinal products for free or with a small additional charge.
