The Brazilian Pharma & Health (BPH) initiative was created to increase the participation of companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and human health and animal health production chains in the international scenario. The project is carried out by Abiquifi (Brazilian Association of the Pharmaceutical Products Industry) in partnership with Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Agency for the Promotion of Exports and Investments).
Through the actions carried out by the project, we promoted the increase of exports, the exchange of technology, the attraction of investments and the internationalization of the sector.
BPH is a brand that symbolizes the identity of the industry. Since its inception, all actions of affiliated companies have taken this stamp to promote the image of the industry in the national and international scenario.
The project also has a governance system called the management committee to monitor all of its actions. The group is made up of 12 companies representing the four verticals, the project manager at Apex-Brazil, the partners ABIFINA, ALANAC, ALFOB, ANBIOTEC, GRUPO FARMA BRASIL, INTERFARMA, SINDIRAÇÕES, PRÓ GENÉRICOS and SINDUSFARMA, and Abiquifi.

To prioritize the most important actions of affiliated companies, optimize results and direct the services of the Brazilian Pharma & Health project, it is fundamental to define target countries.
These markets are elected by the affiliated companies of the internationalization project based on a study developed by the Apex-Brasil Market Intelligence Sector that uses the specific methodology for market analysis.
In addition to target countries that fit all verticals embraced by the project, we also specify target markets for each of the four verticals: Veterinary, Biotechnology, Pharmacology and Pharmaceuticals.
Priorities are: Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, United States, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Russia. Secondaries include: Angola, Poland, Portugal, Germany United Kingdom, Vietnam, Japan and South Korea.
