Green Pharmacy Conference 2017

The environmental cycle of medicines - an incentive for innovation in the human and veterinary medicine chain

Everywhere in the world we can find chemicals in our (drinking) water, the soil, our food crops and in the air. Their source: discarded and discharged medicines used for humans and animals, or to be more precise, livestock. Multi-resistant bacteria are also widely dispersed in the environment. To address the environmental cycle of pharmaceuticals and drug-resistant bacteria a change is necessary in the way we deal with these agents. Medicines, unlike pesticides, can not be easily banned or replaced. Therefore, the healthcare sector and universities are looking for solutions to this societal challenge. During this symposium concrete options for action will be presented to you. The University Medical Centre of Utrecht will demonstrate what they are doing in this area.
