摘要To the Editor—In our recently published study, we evaluated the understanding of generic substitution among healthcare professionals (HCPs) and members of the general public in Hong Kong. Our findings showed that the knowledge and perception of generic substitution among the general public and HCPs remain low. We thank Dr Poon for his comments and respond to each point raised.


Conclusions
The knowledge and perception of generic medicines remains low in many countries including Hong Kong. Prescribing behaviour with regard to generic drugs may vary between different sectors (public vs private) of the healthcare system. Education of both the general public and HCPs as well as HCP trainees is crucial to enable a better understanding of generic versus branded drug use.
