It is human factor that influences the path along which a medicinal product reaches the pharmacy shelf. People in Russia complain that pharmacies do not always have the necessary drugs in stock. The national project «Labor productivity» is going to solve this problem.

Over the course of the project, more than three thousand enterprises have already increased their productivity and any company acting in one of the priority sectors, such as transport or construction, can join them. In the case of the supply of pharmaceutical products, the benefit is obvious to everyone, because the opportunity to receive medicines in time and in the required quantities is more important than ever before.

Saransk pharmaceutical company Biokhimik JSC (member of Promomed Group) is also satisfied with the results of modernization. About 200 drugs are produced here, including antibiotics and antivirals. Studies report that the demand for them has doubled due to the coronavirus pandemic. In order maintain stocks of necessary drugs, the enterprise increased their production from 60 to 170 million per year.

«What does the Labor Productivity national project offers for the pharmaceutical industry? It makes our medicines available to people and ensures that they will always be available in medical institutions and pharmacies,» said Dmitry Zemskov, Executive Director of Biokhimik JSC.
