Background:Drug waste remains an issue that has not been fully addressed and continues to affect the sustainability of health care. As the number of prescribed medicines increases every year, so does the amount of leftover unused medicines. The economical value of unused drugs has been reported to be in the range of 2.3-4.2% of total costs spent.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
