Drug Safety and Security Forum to take place on opening day of SPIEF 2021
The inaugural Drug Safety and
Security Forum will be held on 2 June 2021, the opening day of SPIEF 2021. The
event is organized by the Roscongress Foundation and the Content Foundation for
the Development of Expert and Analytical Activity, and will take place with the
support of the Subcommittee on the Circulation of Medicines and the Development
of the Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry of the State Duma Committee of the
Russian Federation on Health Protection. The Forum’s motto is ‘Science and
Technology for Health’.
“The pandemic has put serious
pressure on the national system for provision of medicines, but this new threat
has also spurred us on to respond quickly and find new solutions like never
before. Business and government have operated as a single, streamlined machine,
while the pharmaceutical industry was rapidly restructured in order to improve
efficiency in these new conditions. The Drug Safety and Security Forum is in
its first year, but I am confident that these meetings between experts on the
sidelines of the Forum will become an integral part of SPIEF, and the Forum
itself will emerge as a key industry event,” said Alexander Petrov, Chair of
the Subcommittee on the Circulation of Medicines and the Development of the
Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry of the State Duma Committee of the Russian
Federation on Health Protection.
The Forum’s business programme
covers a wide range of issues concerning the provision of medicines, and the
theme of the plenary session will be ‘Drug Safety at the Forefront of a
Sustainable Healthcare System’.
