Generics Deliver Savings

The latest Generic Drug Savings and Access Report, commissioned by the Generic Pharmaceutical Association, found that generic medicines save the US around $230 billion each year (1). The findings build upon those of a report published last year, which found that generics save the European Union around €100 billion ($112 billion) per year (2). Check out our infographic for more of the findings.

About the Author
James Strachan

Over the course of my Biomedical Sciences degree it dawned on me that my goal of becoming a scientist didn’t quite mesh with my lack of affinity for lab work. Thinking on my decision to pursue biology rather than English at age 15 – despite an aptitude for the latter – I realized that science writing was a way to combine what I loved with what I was good at.


From there I set out to gather as much freelancing experience as I could, spending 2 years developing scientific content for International Innovation, before completing an MSc in Science Communication. After gaining invaluable experience in supporting the communications efforts of CERN and IN-PART, I joined Texere – where I am focused on producing consistently engaging, cutting-edge and innovative content for our specialist audiences around the world.
