The founder of the award summed up: “The Pharma Industry Awards is the first independent and objective award, where thousands of pharmacists and customers act as a jury. This is what makes the award unique – voting is carried out by those who work directly with pharmaceutical company drugs every day, meet with their medical representatives and, most importantly, communicate with pharmacy clients and patients. At the same time, site users are active, honest and objective participants, ready to make efforts to improve our pharmaceutical market for the benefit of patients. I really hope that such award ceremonies will become a good tradition that will last a long time. Hope we all meet in a year. At least representatives of pharmaceutical companies expressed their willingness to compete for prizes!”
