CURRENT ADVOCACY WORK

Biosimilars
Biosimilars, which are like generic versions of biologics will be available in Australia very soon. However unlike normal generic drugs, biologics are complex medicines and cannot be copied identically. This has been a great source of concern for CJA and other organisations due to the possible safety risks to patients. The government has also passed a bill to allow substitution of biosimilars at pharmacy level which has outraged the medical community.
