VARGAS, Marco; GADELHA, Carlos Augusto Grabois; COSTA, Laís Silveira  e  MALDONADO, José. Innovation in pharmaceutical and health biotechnology industries: challenges for a virtuous agenda. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2012, vol.46, suppl.1, pp.37-40. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102012000700006.

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries comprise a major production subsystem of the health industrial complex in Brazil. It stands out for both its economic importance and its prominent role in developing new technologies in strategic areas. Strengthening the local production of generic drugs in the last decade has significantly increased the number of Brazilian companies in the local pharmaceutical market and has been an important turning point for this industry's growth. However, there remain major structural bottlenecks both in terms of production and continuous innovation. These bottlenecks reveal the high vulnerability of the Brazilian National Health System and point to the need of public policies that promote strengthening the production base and innovation in the pharmaceutical industry and that at the same time meet health-related social demands in health in Brazil.

Palavras-chave : Biotechnology, economics; chemical industry, economics; technological development, policies; national science, technology and innovation policy.
