We are satisfied with the agreements", says Italian General Practitioner's Society (SIMG) chairman Claudio Cricelli, with regards to agreements between the Health Ministry and pharmaceuticals companies federation Federfarma. The agreement concerns the enactment of law no. 149 on pricing policies, namely "generalised cuts to non prescription drugs; as well as promoting generic drugs. A move which -- reads an SIMG communique' -- the Society has lobbied in favour of for years".
