Chart Pack: Biopharmaceuticals In Perspective

PhRMA April 15, 2015

This chart pack provides facts and figures about prescription medicines and their role in the health care system. Topics include medicines’ impact on health and quality of life, the drug discovery and development process, health care spending and costs, the challenges of addressing treatment gaps and improving use of prescribed therapies, and the contributions of the biopharmaceutical sector.

Data and information found in this publication were drawn from a wide range of sources, including government agency reports, peer reviewed journals, and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America’s (PhRMA’s) own research and analysis. PhRMA hopes this publication provides useful context for discussions about the role of medicines and the US economy.
