The IGBA

In an era when increasing demands are being made on the world’s healthcare services, generic and biosimilar medicines provide a major benefit to society by ensuring patient access to quality, safe and effective medicines while reducing the cost of pharmaceutical care.

The International Generic Pharmaceutical Alliance (IGPA) was founded in March 1997 as an international network of generic medicines associations. To reflect the evolving nature of the industry, in late 2015, IGPA incorporated under Swiss Law, and at the same time changed the name of the organization to the International Generic and Biosimilar Medicines Association (IGBA).

Our vision is to promote the widest possible access to generic and biosimilar medicines with high quality, safety and efficacy, support international harmonized pathways for the registration of those medicines, and a strong commitment by members to standards agreed by the International Council for Harmonization (ICH) and WHO accredited regulators.
