Turkey Wins Drug Price Cut as Outlay Exceeds Budget, Sabah Says

Turkey’s government won a price reduction from pharmaceuticals makers that will help limit a likely overspend this year on drugs, Sabah newspaper reported.

The price of drugs retailing for more than 10 liras ($5.40) will fall as much as 10 percent, the Istanbul-based newspaper reported.

The state-run healthcare purchaser requested the reduction after spending on pharmaceuticals reached 16.6 billion liras, compared with a year-end target of 15.6 billion liras, Sabah said.
