Launch of the Medicine Status Website

Page last updated: 3 February 2020

The Minister for Health recently announced the launch of the Medicine Status Website (MSW). The MSW is now live and available through the PBS website.

The MSW allows the Australian public to track the progress of a medicine as it moves through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) listing process. It contains information on applications considered by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) from July 2019 onwards. It does not include information on vaccines or generic medicines.

The MSW was developed in collaboration with consumer and industry representatives, and Medicines Australia. Thank you to all of those involved in the development of this exciting new resource.

See the PBS Website for further information.
