The Central American countries will be planning another annual purchase, this time of 78 drugs.
In 2012, the Ministry of Health of Honduras and counterparts from Central American plan to buy 78 types of drugs.
"The ones we bought last year were anticancer medicines, drugs for HIV, hematoncology medicines, where we had a very important savings of more than 25 percent," said Health Minister Arturo Bendana to Elheraldo.hn.
Overcome weaknesses, build strengths; partnerships between companies to achieve vertical or horizontal integration is a good bet for growth.
Some of the forms of horizontal integration that business partnerships assume are to reduce costs by purchasing a pool of supplies, market exports as a whole and consolidate to lower freight charges. Vertical integration is usually more complex, requiring each of the partners to specialize in specific business sectors to achieve productive linkage. The common denominator is the desire to overcome weaknesses and generate strengths through a partnership perhaps with the company that up until yesterday was your competition.
