Reuters Pharma Europe 2024 – Peter Stenico

Eloise McLennan interview with Peter Stenico

Pioneering access to biosimilars is crucial for strengthening health equity by providing affordable, life-changing therapies to patients worldwide. However, despite 85% of the world's population living in low- and middle-income countries, 80% of biologics are used in high-income nations.

At last month’s Reuters Pharma Europe conference in Barcelona, pharmaphorum’s Eloise McLennan sat down with Peter Stenico, global head of biosimilars and country president for Sandoz Austria, to talk about the crucial role of biosimilars in promoting health equity and expanding access to life-changing biologics.

Touching on a wide array of topics, Stenico discusses how Sandoz's Act4Biosimilars initiative aims to achieve 30% usage in 30+ countries by 2030, focusing on access, approvability, affordability, and acceptability; and details the importance of education in overcoming fear and uncertainty among healthcare professionals and patients.
