On June 15, at the meeting "Medical Safety" of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, a ceremony was held to sign an agreement on cooperation between the Association of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers of the Eurasian Economic Union, which includes the ACTICOMP and the Russian Union of Public Associations of Patients. Such a step, according to both sides, will contribute to increasing the confidence of the population and medical professionals in the quality and effectiveness of Russian medicines.

"We are very pleased with the ongoing open dialogue with leading Russian pharmaceutical manufacturers, because it is very important for us that every patient is provided with the most modern and at the same time affordable therapy," said Yuri Zhulev, co-chairman of the Russian Union of Public Associations of Patients.

Over the past two years, the member companies of the Association have been actively involved in the development of such areas as monitoring the effectiveness and safety of medicines, improving the pharmacovigilance system, early notification of the patient community about promising developments, patient participation in expert activities, improving the legislation of the pharmaceutical industry both in the Russian Federation and within the EAEU space.
