Canning Paper Presentation: the Latin American Pharmaceutical Industry

  • Canning House, 126 Wigmore Street, London

The Latin American pharmaceutical industry has grown steadily, and shows many signs that it will continue in the same direction, with demand for medicines and proprietary drugs set to grow strongly across the region. The latest Canning Paper takes a closer look at this industry, analysing the data and drawing out some of its key issues in the region, namely controversy over pharmaceuticals pricing and attempts to attract pharma investment. The paper also zooms in on three countries, of particular interest in different ways: Brazil, Mexico and Cuba.
