Abstract

Previous research investigating the impact of pharmaceutical innovation in Turkey has shown that the use of newer drugs increased mean age at death by approximately 3 years during the period 1999-2008 and reduced the number of hospital days by approximately 1% per year during the period 2007-2010.
