Drug Security: International Cooperation and the Search for Joint Solutions

14 Jun , 14:30–16:00
‘Ensuring Drug Security’ Russian Pharmaceutical Forum
Pavilion G, conference hall G5

Current global challenges and the geopolitical situation dictate the need to build reliable partnerships with friendly countries, including to ensure drug security issues. It is necessary to create international platforms for dialogue between regulators, business, and professional communities to discuss harmonization of requirements for registration of medicines and certification of their production processes. Sharing experiences, removing excessive administrative barriers, and harmonizing requirements will facilitate the development and market launch of safe, effective, and high-quality medicines in the most resource-efficient way. What obstacles and challenges do pharmaceutical producers face when entering international markets? What are the specifics of drug registration and manufacturing certification requirements in the Russian Federation and a number of partner countries? What steps are needed to harmonize the approaches of our countries and improve access to medicines? Which medicines manufactured in Russia have a competitive export potential for international pharmaceutical markets?
