Market access in Brazil: All eyes on Spinraza
Director Rachel Howard asks, “What does Brazil’s unprecedented risk-sharing agreement in Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) mean for the future of market access in Brazil?
In April 2019, Brazilian Health Minister Luiz Henrique Mandetta announced a pilot agreement for access to Biogen’s Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) treatment Spinraza (nusinersen) through the Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS). This is the first agreement in Brazil to include a risk-sharing model, in which the government only pays for the drug if there is improvement in the patient's health. In a country where it typically takes years for innovative pharmaceutical products to be reimbursed in the public sector, manufacturers wishing to obtain market access for their products in Brazil will be watching this example closely to see how it plays out.
