HERTFORDSHIRE, England and PITTSBURGH, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ, TASE: MYL) today applauds the rebranding of the Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA) to the Association for Accessible Medicines (AAM).
Mylan CEO Heather Bresch commented, "The launch of GPhA's new brand – the Association for Accessible Medicines – reflects what we mean to America's healthcare system. Today, generic medicines are used to fill nearly 90% of prescriptions in the U.S., yet represent only 27% of the cost. The new name also reflects the dramatic shift in how healthcare is being delivered in our country, and the increasing importance for patients approaching the pharmacy counter to experience the true savings that our medicines provide."
