The eventCapital weekly in partnership with the Association of Research-Based Pharmaceutical Manufacturers in Bulgaria, the Bulgarian Drug Verification Organization and the Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Union, is organizing a conference under the title "National System for Medicines Verification - a Guarantee for Your Safety" on January 23rd, 2019.
After February 10th, 2019, a new medicinal product verification system, fully funded by the pharmaceutical sector, will operate in the countries of the European Union that completely prevents counterfeit medicines from entering the drug supply chain and increases patient security and safety. In Bulgaria, the system is already in place and on the eve of its full implementation it is necessary to promote the main benefits it brings to society and to citizens and to discuss the challenges from the point of view of legislators, government, regulators, industry, distributors, pharmacists and patients.
To participate in the event, we will invite the MPs from the Parliamentary Health Commission, the Minister of Health, the Executive Director of the Bulgarian Drug Agency, as well as our EMVO partners and patients' organizations.
Capital newspaper closely monitors the pharmaceutical sector processes for nearly 15 years by publishing daily and periodical content, annual analyzes, organizing discussion clubs and conferences with the participation of all stakeholders in the sector.
We will be honored you to join the conference with our respected partners to promote this so significant process.
