E-drug: Prescription fees (cont)
---------------------------------------------
In Spain we have a fixed structure price of community pharmacies 
based on a percentage of cost of medicine. This percentage varies 
from time to time in accordance with agreement between "Consejo 
General de Colegios Oficiales de Farmaceuticos" (spanish pharmacies 
association) and the Government. Nowadays this percentage is 27.9% of 
major distribution cost, except in expensive drugs which have a top 
fee of $ 110.
In the last few months, the neoliberal government policy tries to
disregulate this system, endangering an equitative access to medicines.
