ISPOR Serbia Chapter was very active over the past six months in the field of Health Economics promotion and public awareness. At the end of the last year, there was a significant shift in the country pharmaco-politics, whereby for the first time managed entry agreements (MEA) were applied to allow innovative medicines to enter the list of reimbursed drugs.
Due to the hard efforts of ISPOR Serbia Chapter during last several years in organization of conference/workshops, education nights to bring MEA closer to both sides of the table, namely, stakeholders and industry, Chapter was proud to present the results of this new MEA policy at two conferences: 7th Adriatic Congress of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research held in Porec, Croatia and 11th IME-META National Health Economics Training and Conference in Pecs, Hungary.
Furthermore, ISPOR Serbia Chapter members have been invited for two AmCham Serbia (American Chamber of Commerce) roundtables to take active part on the discussions related to central procurement. The first one was on the importance of the quality issue during the procurement of medical devices and the second one was about the INN tendering of medicines issued on prescription where ISPOR Serbia Chapter has presented the results of the small research on tendering in 14 CEE countries.
In line with the past activities the Chapter is preparing the same active autumn session - September 22, 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia. ISPOR Serbia Chapter is organizing the 5th International Congress of Pharmacoeconomics with two hot topics: Multicriteria Decision Analysis (practical application) and HEOR in the service of P&R Negotiations.
Looking forward to seeing you in Belgrade!
