【MHLW】Highest Priority are About 10 to 20 Items – Direction of Classification of Drugs to be Ensured Consistently

2020年11月06日 (金)

On the 2nd of Nov, at the “Working Group of Involved Parties Meeting on Strategy for Ensuring Prescription Drugs Consistently”, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare(MHLW) showed the direction that particularly 551 items to be ensured consistently would be divided into 3 categories including highest-priority items and priority items, and the proposal was basically accepted. It is assumed that the highest-priority items are about 10 to 20 and priority items are about 30. MHLW intends to implement the categorization, hold the next meeting after the beginning of the new year, and report to the Involved Parties Meeting in the mid-to late March next year.

A report from the Involved Parties Meeting announced in September shows a view that necessary measures should be taken after categorizing 551 items that have been widely used in the clinical practice for a long-term period and should be particularly ensured consistently at the Working Group from following perspectives: “serious target disease” “absence of alternative drugs or alternative therapies” “many patients taking the drug” and “circumstances of manufacturing and supply chain such as difficulties with manufacturing and production volume”.

At the first meeting of the Working Group on the day, MHLW showed the direction that 551 items would be divided into 3 categories: “highest-priority items” “priority items” and “others” and the proposal was basically accepted.

The number of items of each category is assumed to be about 10 to 20 for highest-priority items and about 30 for priority items. The members of the meeting basically agreed that judgment of the categorization would be as simple as possible and that the task would be implemented in cooperation with relevant industries for circumstances of supply chain.

Most of the 9 members were elected from the Involved Parties Meeting, and Tetsuya Matsumoto (Senior Professor, Infection Diseases, International University of Health and Welfare) was appointed to the chairperson.
