The Draft Law No. 9385 will allow to overcome “evergreen patents” and reduce the prices for medicines. Now, patent law allows pharmaceutical companies to have a monopoly on medicines artificially extending the patent validity. Because of the imperfect patent law, the state and every Ukrainian pay for drugs a lot more than in other countries of the world, and patients die because they cannot receive treatment. For example, due to artificial extension of patent for the drug Aluvia for the treatment of HIV, Ukraine bought it three times more expensive than neighboring countries. Accordingly, if we overcome “evergreen patents”, treatment covered by the state will be received by three times as many patients.
