Pharmaceutical companies do not set their prices based on production costs, but rather based on market price. In courtiers under development, this frequently limits the access of pharmaceutical products to people that need them but cannot afford it. Price mainly depends on the relationship between supply and demand, competition with other suppliers, and the level of 'freedom' with which pharmaceutical companies can operate. In the present article, Julieta Alcain, Nicolas Chiarante, and Matías Zelaya discuss in detail each of these variables, and how public production of medicines may secure their supply to every patient that may need them.
