Ukrainians began to spend more money on medicine
During the first 9 months of 2013, the total pharmaceutical sales of all "chemist basket" product categories was 25.6 billion hryvnias for 1.46 billion packs, exceeding the indicator of the previous year by 13% in value and by 2.6% in kind.
This was reported by the publication "Apteka", referring to the Proxima Research company.
According to the publication, distribution of the share of regions in total retail sales of pharmaceutical products for 9 months in monetary terms is quite heterogeneous in nature.
This is caused by different economic and socio-demographic characteristics of each region, as well as its geographic location.
