Executive Director
Dear VNGOC Marketplace members!

We are happy to inform you that on August 21 the Smart Solutions Integration Agency hosted an expert discussion on drug use among elderly people for Russia’s leading drug abuse prevention medical experts and NGOs specializing in elderly social support programs. We included key discussion outcomes into our written statement submitted to INCB prior to its 128th session.

Our submission highlights the need to expand the INCB discussion and explore the issues of excessive use of over-the-counter medicine (OTC) to treat insomnia and anxiety, recreational drug use among older persons, ethics of OTC drugs’ marketing to elderly consumers. Furthermore, we suggest countries should consolidate available data and statistics related to benzodiazepines and OTC drugs misuse among older people in order to determine the magnitude of the problem.

As always, we are open to questions and inputs from the VNGOC Marketplace community!
