2021: a renewed trust in selfcare products and an evidence of their importance for the French healthcare system

NèreS presents the results of the 2021 barometer of selfcare products sold in community pharmacies carried out in collaboration with OpenHealth Company.

These products play an essential role in the everyday health of the French people and 2021 surely confirms this observation. After a difficult and disrupted year in 2020 due to the health crisis, the year 2021 has been driven by two phenomena:
