Drug Prices Much Lower in Poor Countries Than in United States

Share: 

Pharmaceutical prices in the United States tend to be significantly higher than in other countries, with prices in poor, developing countries being the lowest of all, according to a study by two UCLA School of Public Health faculty members. The study results come at a time of growing concern that the high costs of pharmaceutical research and development might create a burden for poor patients in developing countries. The study was funded by the Eli Lilly company and published in Health Affairs.
