The competition between innovative and generic pharmaceutical companies intensified in the last decades. The models created by innovative pharmaceutical industries rest on market exclusivity, higher medicines prices and patent protection system. Republic of Macedonia has a limited medicines budget, and its healthcare policies aim to save on medicines supplies. The legislation in the Republic of Macedonia is constantly modified due to the harmonisation with the European regulation. The country intends to allow the entry and use of innovative medicines, especially for first- and second-line therapy. In this study, we aim to
analyze the current legislation (legal acts, bylaws, price methodology) and describe the circumstances that lead to innovative medicines’ market entry.
