Cofepris to work on reforming access to best healthcare solutions
Cofepris, the healthcare regulatory body of Mexico, will promote a responsible policy this year, focused on working on effective access of the population to the best healthcare solutions and contributing to the prevention of health risks. According to the head of Cofepris, the institution will strengthen timely access to a market duly supplied with safe, efficient and of the highest quality at the best prices, implement strategies to protect the population against health risks, promote the economic activity of the sector and combat illegal products and services that do not comply with health regulations. The Federal Commission will continue to authorize health records of drugs and medical devices, in terms of providing a timely access to a properly stocked market for health supplies. It is worth noting that around four thousand registrations were issued in 2016. On international agenda matters, Cofepris’ reaccess to the Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation Program will allow the use of mechanisms for the recognition of certificates of good manufacturing practice, with a view to gaining full member access.
