Nicaragua Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q4 2017

BMI View: Despite government efforts to improve healthcare coverage, we continue to view Nicaragua'spharmaceutical market as one of least attractive in the region. Although growing, the size of the overallmarket is among the smallest in Central America and is limited by a largely low-income population with astrong preference for traditional medicines. Furthermore, weak drug regulatory framework and poorhealthcare infrastructure will dampen multinational drugmakers' interest in the country.
