Brazil is the most populated country in Latin America, and in 2010, with a population of 193 million, was the fifth most populated country in the world. It currently has a demographic advantage in terms of a large working age population. The available data for the age-wise distribution of the Brazilian population shows that the population in the working age group of 20-59 years increased from 2005 to 2010. The elderly population (60 years and above) is expected to increase in the future to account for more than 13% of the population by 2020. The disease burden associated with a large elderly population will require significant healthcare expenditure, thereby acting as a positive driver for the Brazilian healthcare market. The Brazilian Ministry of Health (MoH) enacted a complete National Drug Policy (NDP) in 1998 to support the national health policy and the public’s right of access to healthcare. The NDP facilitates the guidelines and responsibilities for all government levels regarding the guarantee of access to medicines necessary to public health.
