WHERE WE BEGAN

AMID was created to overcome the structural problems of our industry:

Excluded from the Legislative Agenda

All the attention for health supplies was focused on drugs.

Lack of awareness of the value of medical devices in healthcare.

Regulatory Dispersion:

MD regulated under a generic label called "health supplies"
Operating under inefficient and rigid rules.

Constant overlap with pharmaceutical regulation.

No Media Attention.

Media did not differentiate between drugs and medical devices, the latter neglected as essential elements for health.

Misinformation led to a lack of interest in Medical Devices.

No Industry Representation.

Our sector was not fully represented by any organization.

A large number of medical device problems were inconsistent with the national industry.

In order to optimize our operation, AMID set two primary objectives:

Enhancing the Competitiveness of the Industry.

Promote full compliance with the regulatory framework.

Promote harmonization of the regulatory frameworkto international standards.

Promote harmonization of the regulatory frameworkto international standards.

Participate in working groups between the Government and the Medical Device industry.

Encouragment of Ethical Criteria and Best Practices.

Perform all activities and relationships under a Code of Ethics established by AMID promoting co-responsability as central principle.

Develop specialized documents on procurement policies.

Promote transparency and legal certainty in the process of public procurement.

AMID has incremented its number of Associates to 29.
