Frost & Sullivan: Lack of Proper Price Regulation for Pharmaceuticals
Date:11/12/2012

imum profit margin of 21.6%," noted Moyo. "Failure to adhere to these price caps result in significant fines. This is one manner in which the Mauritian government is keeping the prices of pharmaceuticals affordable."

Profit controls limit the amount of profit a pharmaceutical wholesaler or distributor may earn per product. Nevertheless, industry participants often see these price regulations as suppressive. Due to the low profit margins, sustainability for wholesalers only comes from large trading volumes, while other distributors are expanding into high profit margin food supplements.

Although, responsible authorities should look into ways of capping these exorbitant mark-ups, there should be a balance between access and liberal market policies.

The governments' actions should be focused on creating an environment that would best encourage a constant flow of new and innovative medicines to the market, providing substantial health benefits to consumers, Moyo concludes.
