    The Bureau of Statistics of the Estonian State Agency of Medicines has the responsibility to collect data from general pharmacies and hospital pharmacies concerning their sphere of activity. The pharmacies present their reports four times a year. There is no possibility to show the exact quantity or value of each product separately. On pharmacy level only the total value of the market can be counted.

    Short reviews of the activity of Estonian pharmacies are now available in pdf format.
