Relieve the people to take medicine, the establishment of the Inner Mongolia Pharmacy Union
On October 19th, 2013 China Pharmaceutical Retail (Inner Mongolia) Summit Forum and Inner Mongolia Pharmacy Union Inaugural Meeting was held in Hohhot.
Since October 2009, there have been 17 provincial-level pharmacy alliances established nationwide. It is understood that the provincial pharmacy alliance covers 20 provinces and municipalities across the country, with more than 500 member units and a total of more than 22,000 stores.
Through joint procurement, the pharmacy alliances have greatly shortened the circulation of medicines, reduced the cost of circulation of medicines, and promoted the decline in the retail price of medicines. To a certain extent, it alleviated the phenomenon that people “have expensive medicines”. Statistics from various leagues show that in 2012, the prices of most of the jointly purchased goods in their retail terminals generally fell by 3% to 6%, and the retail price reduction of some commodities reached 15%. Through the construction of the alliance, the vicious price competition between regional pharmacies was effectively restrained, and the benign development of the market was maintained.
