In a press release, the company Apogen asks for the creation of a European green route for medicines
“Ensure the normal functioning of the national drug industry; ensuring the free movement of medicines, raw materials and personal protective equipment in Portugal and Europe; and create a “European Green Way” for your transportation. These are the objectives that APOGEN – Portuguese Association of Generic and Biosimilar Medicines wants to see accomplished in times of pandemic. To this end, the association asks the Government for action, so that there is coordinated action, at national and European level.
“The APOGEN member companies, in teleworking or in the manufacturing units, reinforce their commitment and commitment in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing to produce and send generic and biosimilar medicines to those who need them most”, says João Madeira, president of APOGEN.”
