"We must ascertain the real need for taking some drugs"
The Venezuelan National Superintendent of Costs and Prices stressed that the production of drugs by the pharmaceutical sector is under analysis as well as the real needs of the population
"We must find out the real need for taking some drugs, for instance, how publicity influences consumption of some drugs," Granadillo said.
"It is important to be reasonable in drugs domestic consumption," she noted.
Granadillo remarked that the assessment aims at determining whether some costs that should be covered by the industry are transferred to prices. "Companies must cover all their production costs," the superintendent added.
