Market Access & Marketing

"Kazakhstan Pharmaceutical Messenger" is an information and analytical newspaper for specialists in the field of drug circulation. Its first issue was published on November 15, 1995. At that time, the pharmaceutical market of the republic was at the very beginning of its development. Its participants faced a lot of problems, the most acute of which was the lack of information. There was a need for an industry information publication. And it appeared. The response of the pharmaceutical community to the first issues of "KFM", which looked very modest, since they were printed on ordinary newsprint, showed how necessary and useful the publication was.
