The Generic Medicines Industry Association (GMiA) warmly welcomes the appointment of the Hon Sussan Ley as Minister for Health and looks forward to productive discussions about the issues that will secure the ongoing supply of affordable medicines and the savings that they bring to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).
“We look forward to a fresh approach from Ms Ley. It is time for new thinking when it comes to the PBS, consideration of the consequences of price disclosure, a commitment to business certainty for industry and action on a predictable market entry pathway for biosimilars,” said Mr Mark Crotty, GMiA Chairman.
GMiA also extends best wishes to outgoing Minister for Health, Peter Dutton, as he takes on the portfolio of Immigration and Border Protection.
