When it comes to Latin America, the last thing that comes to mind for many is, pharmaceuticals, but that may change very soon. Recently opportunities for Pharma, as well as other industries are continuing to grow in Latin American countries. Latin America is accessible and affordable, and proving to be prominent for both sales and research. According to a PharmPhorum.com summary, Latin America’s Pharma sector continues to grow annually, their mortality rates are better, and due to the vast treatment for non-communicable diseases, medical care is necessary.
Here are a few reasons why Latin America should be considered:
- It offers experienced investigators, many available patients and excellent data quality, as well as lower costs of business in general.
- Its disease profile now more closely matches most of the developed world.
- It offers “seasonal compatibility” with the Northern Hemisphere, allowing year-round trial activity for seasonal medical conditions and for pharmas seeking to avoid poor patient compliance due to inclement weather.
