Medicine price and its quality were the main issues at the meeting, held at the Ministry of Health. The meeting was attended by the officials of the Ministry and the Regulatory Agency, representatives of the Competition Agency, Parliament and the World Health Organization.

Ekaterine Tikaradze notes that the price of medicine is a great burden for the population and the Ministry of Health is starting to work actively to eliminate these problems.

According to the Ministry, a working group will be set up, which will work on the regulation of drug prices.

"The main goal of the meeting has been the medicine quality and its price, which is a great burden for our population and the healthcare system for years. In this regard, works are underway at the Ministry of Health after 2019. Also, the Health Committee worked on the part of the medicine, and the WHO made numerous recommendations in this regard. We also involved the Competition Agency in the study of the issue.

From today we will set up working groups to solve this problem and then we will pass an important law, which will affect the well-being of our citizens, both in terms of price and quality of medicines, "- said Ekaterine Tikaradze.
