Sofo Kiladze, the  Chair of the Human Rights and Civil Integration Committee, proposes  a new initiative. According to her, drug prices are too high in Georgia and need to be regulated by the state.

“I have not seen a country where doctors prescribe so many medicines to patients as in Georgia. Prices for medicines are very high and  have a punitive effect on every resident. The government should regulate prices but unfortunately, nothing has been done in this regard so far, ”she notes.

 PSP founder and the MP from the ruling party  Kakha Okriashvili comments on the deputy’s statement and says  that only  those who have the competence should propose the initiatives in healthcare.

 “What Sofo Kiladze knows about healthcare to propose  such initiatives,  only those who are competent in these matters can propose them, ” the businessman believes.


In Kakha Okriashvili’s words, he has a great respect for her and appreciates her as a good lawyer, but the lawyer should deal with jurisprudence and not healthcare.

“Medicines are very expensive for people because of low incomes and not because of  high prices of drugs. Medicines are 3 times more expensive in Europe but they are available due to high income of the population,” Kakha Okriashvili points out.
