WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Chip Davis, President and CEO, Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA) will hold a news conference Monday to outline his organization's response to the latest debate over the lack of competition in the prescription drug market.

"The current debate about drug pricing is getting a lot of attention for particular price fluctuations of certain drugs, but we shouldn't let it distract us from taking a comprehensive approach to making medicine more affordable and accessible to the American people," Davis said. 

GPhA has outlined a 5-point plan with specific policy proposals for increasing competition and for speeding medicines to patients. 

Davis will also address the current state of play for these proposals and discuss the political environment around a number of proposals that would actually serve to chill competition.

"Given the sensitivities, it's puzzling that some stakeholders in this debate are moving to stifle policies that would actually serve to increase access to affordable medicines," Davis added.
