On October 25, 2019, HealthyWomen convened a day-long forum in Washington, DC, to examine the role of biosimilars in women’s health. Experts offered perspectives that included the current state of biosimilars in the U.S.; federal legislative and regulatory updates; research-to-market advances and challenges; and challenges and opportunities for biosimilars to improve women’s access to treatment. Robust discussion also were highlights of the forum. HealthyWomen released findings from its survey, “Women as Consumers of Biosimilars,” which indicated opportunities for improving women’s awareness of biosimilars as treatment options.
