DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of pulmonary hypertension (PH) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in the Middle East & Africa. We report the prevalence of PH for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

Most patient populations are forecast over a period of ten years for the pharmaceutical markets we cover in this report. In addition to forecasting prevalent patient populations, we forecast the number of drug-treatment opportunities in specific lines of therapy.

DRG Epidemiology’s PH forecast will answer the following questions:

  • How many people will be diagnosed with PH?
  • How will GDP trends, demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of PH over the forecast period?
