Of the 700 medicines missing / in short supplies as reported by Romania to 'Shortages catalogue' of the EU
494 or 70.57% cite as reason - 'Motive comerciale' OR commercial reasons
172 cite as reason - 'Motive de fabricatie' OR production reasons
34 missing medications for various other reasons
From our study on a sample of 5 medicines missing/short supply in Romania due to parallel trade is 58.18% or 407 medicines. That makes it 87 medicines missing due to commercial reasons other than parallel trade.
All numbers resulting from OGP study are in line with what is known and published. This is a positive and firm confirmation of OGP' potential to resolve medicine crises in low priced markets.
