During the forecast period, the number of outlets of the People’s Pharmacy, (Farmacias del Pueblo) will see further growth, as the government looks to make medicine more affordable to lower-income consumers. The Dominican Republic is unique for its chain of the People’s Pharmacy, which are chemist/pharmacies developed by the government under its public healthcare programme, PROMESE/CAL, with the aim of extending access to OTC and Rx drugs to lower-income households.
Increasingly consumers will purchase analgesics through supermarkets, as it is more convenient than having to visit a pharmacy especially. While supermarkets do not offer as wide a variety as pharmacies, they carry the most popular brands such as Winasorb and Bayer brands.
Analgesics will face a continual threat from traditional herbal alternatives such as ginger or turmeric. There is a long tradition of herbal medicine in the Dominican Republic and it is gaining more recognition, especially for long-term use, as consumers look to natural, non-chemical alternatives for pain relief.
