The Study: The Use of Generic Drugs in Latvia: public and professionals' awareness, opinions and experience

01.08.2015

Latvian residents still overpay several million euros on drugs each year, although these drugs have cheaper alternative available with equivalent therapeutic effect - generic drugs. To investigate what attitudes and experience-based factors hinder increasing share of generic drugs, NGO "Health Projects for Latvia" has carried out a major study, which includes the population opinion poll, interviews with doctors and pharmacists, as well as media content analysis.
The final study report "The Use of Generic Drugs in Latvia: public and professionals' awareness, opinions and experience" available here.

The Project is financially supported by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Program is funded by the EEA Financial Mechanism and Latvian state.
