This article was originally published in Clinica
Brazil's implants, medtech importers and pathology sectors have joined forces to raise their political and public profiles. The national associations of implants importers and distributors (Abraidi), medical equipment and supplies importers (Abimed) and the Brazilian chamber of laboratory diagnostics (CBDL) have contracted Web Setorial, an "economics consultancy", to act as their economics department. Its remit will be primarily to collate and analyse healthcare market and general economic data. These will be used by the three bodies to strengthen their political influence with the government, steer the corporate strategy of their members and raise their profile among the public and healthcare sector players.
