Putting the focus on patients - Interpharma


Putting the focus on patients

Our mission is to ensure that all patients in Switzerland receive the best possible medicines and therapies for their needs as quickly as possible as part of their basic health insurance cover. For this to happen, medicinal products need to be authorised promptly by Swissmedic, basic health insurance needs to cover products from day 1 of authorisation, and there need to be sustainable models to reward innovations. We ensure that these medicinal products and therapies are of the highest possible quality. And we play our part in making sure that the cost of these therapies remains commensurate with the benefit they offer for patients, society and the economy.
