Overview of the Pharma Environment within Medis’ CSEE Region

Central and South Eastern Europe – the CSEE – is a highly complex region comprising countries with diverse economies, pharma environments, histories and religious persuasions.

The CSEE region where we are actively present with own subsidiaries and local sales, medical and regulatory teams, plays an important role within the EU. With 53 million inhabitants, it is comparable to the size of EU5 markets.

We make it possible for you to access the whole of this diverse region through one contact point and thus enable you to significantly lower your workload and costs.

  1. The pharma market in these 11 countries now tops 12.5 billion euros and is still growing.
  2. Improved economic outlook and stability.
