Is Iran advanced in medicine?
Iran is a developing country in West Asia as part of the Middle East. Over the last few decades, Iran has made great strides in terms of its healthcare system and health care. The list below represents just a few of Iran’s successful medical advances developed over the past decade.
Iran introduced a primary healthcare system in 1990s, revolutionizing the healthcare system. Since the founding of the government, the country’s life expectancy has increased by eight years. This has had a positive impact on both their economy and poor communities. Iran has also made great efforts to improve accessibility to healthcare. More than 90% of the rural population now has access to affordable healthcare. Previously, there were large gaps in health care in sparsely populated rural areas, home to many vulnerable groups.
Locally produced medicine
Since the 1979 Iranian Revolution, the country has made it a priority to start producing locally produced medicines and medicines. Before the revolution, Iran relied on foreign imports for approximately 70-80% of its pharmaceutical ingredients. As of 2018, it is estimated that around 97% of medicines are produced and manufactured locally.
The focus on local production has boosted Iran’s economy and made the country a major competitor in the global market. It also increased GDP by exporting locally manufactured medicines. In addition, the country has strict regulations on imports. Iran follows both American guidelines and its own regulations to ensure high quality and safe products.
Iran’s health minister explained that the country could save about 700 million euros just by manufacturing its own products.
Biotechnology is the manipulation of living organisms to manufacture and develop products. Medical biotechnology has the power to improve healthcare systems around the world. Iran’s advanced healthcare system has enabled Iran to become a leader in medical biotechnology in the Middle East and North Africa.
The rise of Iran’s domestic manufacturing industries ranges from pharmaceuticals to biotechnology. As of 2012, there are 12 of approved products and 15 pending approval in the country. These products have allowed Iran to be at the forefront of biotechnology production. Other countries now depend on Iran for medical trade. Biotechnology has the potential to create a range of medical advances in Iran. If a country achieves leadership in biomedical technology, the benefits to its economy and citizens are numerous.
Advances in medical care in Iran have also led to new medical treatments. Countries are developing new drugs and treatments in hopes of curing certain diseases. Just this year, a group of scientists announced they had developed Fenosha, an herbal remedy for epilepsy. It has been successful in clinical trials.
The drug’s developer, Reza Mazloom Farsibaf, says no other drug can match Fenosha. This treatment is non-toxic and has minimal side effects and symptoms. If approved, we can expect mass production of Fenosha. Herbal medicine could be a viable option for her 340 million people worldwide who need treatment for epilepsy. The country is expected to continue developing products that further strengthen its position in healthcare
