The City of Knowledge Foundation invites you on Thursday, March 12, to the discussion session "Improving access to medicines in Panama," which will be held in room 101 of the City of Knowledge Convention Center, Bldg. 184.

The accessibility of medicines in Panama is not conditioned only to the right price, but also to obtain quality products. The sustained effort by regulating agents and an active participation of the private sector, are some of the keys to improving this scenario.
