Representatives of authorities, business, patient community, and international organizations take part in expert discussions within the Drug Security Forum. Such a discussion platform has a high practical significance and brings together all parties interested in the development of the healthcare industry," said Alexander Petrov, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Circulation of Medicines, Development of Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry of the State Duma Committee on Health Protection of the Russian Federation.

Which solutions can further accelerate registration procedures and the introduction of new drugs into circulation, provided a guarantee of safe use? How to harmonize regulatory practices on the unified pharmaceutical market of the EAEC?
