tractive to generic drug companies.
  • Expand the number of commonly used drugs included in the competitive purchasing approach.
  • Ensure transparency in competitive processes.
  • Encourage brand name and generic manufacturers both domestic and international to participate.

    "Our goal in pricing generic drugs should be to provide a reliable supply of high-quality medicines at the best possible cost," write the authors. "By changing the way Canada procures medicines, this joint commitment is a true opportunity to both reduce drug expenditures and improve access to health care," conclude the authors.
