Kuwait announces up to 60% price cuts for over 200 drugs

Kuwait’s Minister of Health, Ahmad Al-Awadhi, has authorized significant price reductions for 209 drugs and medical products in the private health sector. This decision, part of the ministry’s regular review of medication prices, aims to ensure affordability for essential treatments.

The price adjustments include medications for diabetes, blood pressure, antibiotics, cholesterol management, and other critical pharmaceuticals. Some drug prices will see reductions of up to 60 percent. The new pricing structure will take effect three months after publication in the Official Gazette.

This initiative underscores Kuwait’s commitment to making essential healthcare more accessible and sustainable for its citizens while supporting local pharmaceutical manufacturing.
