Russian Pharmaceutical Forum named after Semashko: the main meeting place for the pharmaceutical market acquires a new name

The Russian Pharmaceutical Forum has been the main platform for meeting the entire Russian pharmaceutical market and discussing the most pressing and pressing issues of the pharmaceutical industry for 28 years. The rich history of the Forum and the challenges that the national drug supply system is currently facing turned the attention of the Forum organizers to the historical experience of building and forming a unique model of the national healthcare system built by the outstanding healthcare organizer Nikolai Semashko.

Maintaining continuity, but at the same time giving a new round of development to one of the most reputable industry events, this year the Russian Pharmaceutical Forum will be named in memory of the legendary organizer of healthcare - Nikolai Semashko.

The principles of the "Semashko system" are based on the centralization of management, the consolidation of resources of state institutions and the principle of universal access to medical care and medicines for citizens of the country. Today, the national health care and pharmaceutical industry is going through a period when the concept developed by the great organizer of health care and its key principle of unity of management and consolidation of the efforts of state bodies is becoming especially relevant.

This year the Russian Pharmaceutical Forum named after Semashko will take place on May 17-18, 2022 in St. Petersburg and is supported by the State Institute of Medicines and Good Practices of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia. As part of the business program of the Forum, the key issues facing the industry today under the new sanctions realities will be touched upon:

How to form a strategy for the development of the pharmaceutical industry in the new reality?
What are the current changes in the regulation of the industry and what additional support measures are needed?
What are the industry development trends in the context of import substitution of raw materials, materials and components?
How to maintain the potential for innovative development against the backdrop of a sharp cessation of investment in clinical trials?
