|The article analyses expressions of import substitution of the Russian pharmaceutical market, presents calculations of the quantitative measure of import substitution, and describes quantitative measures of import dependency in various sectors of the pharmaceutical market (commercial retail sector, hospital sector, social benefit sector, sector of pharmaceutical substances). The authors show that all of these sectors are considerably dependent upon import (over 50% of sales costs), which allows to make a conclusion on the total dependency of Russian pharmaceutical market. This is a serious threat to the medicinal security of the country|
|Key words: pharmaceutical market, import dependency, medicinal security, import of medicines, pharmaceutical substances|
