Antibiotics, vaccines, cancer drugs… to deal with the shortage of drugs in pharmacies, the government has just announced the forthcoming relocation of 25 molecules. 25 more drugs are expected to follow.

To deal with this shortage, Health Minister François Braun announced last April that the government was working on drafting a list of 450 priority and essential drugs.
That’s done. The President of the Republic, traveling to Ardèche at the beginning of the week, presented this list from which he took out “50 essential drugs for which our dependence on imports from outside Europe is proven” and whose production will be relocated to France more or less less long term.

Drugs used in resuscitation and emergency
