Drugs dispensed with and without a prescription from community pharmacies in a conurbation in Egypt
Benjamin, H.; Smith, F.; Motawi, U.A. ( 1996 )

The pattern of drug supply from pharmacies, whether by prescription, recommendation from the pharmacist or a request for a particular product by the client, was assessed. The drugs dispensed from 25 pharmacies, each from a different area of Alexandria, were investigated. Two three-hour study visits were made to each pharmacy to collect data on all drugs dispensed. A total of 1174 products were supplied; 28% on prescription and 72% over-the-counter sales [17% of the latter were recommendations from pharmacists]. The range of products supplied with and without a prescription were similar. The implications of these findings are discussed

[Drugs in primary health care centres: availability and prescription in health district, Monastir, Tunisia]
Ben Salem, K. ( 2000 )

Shortages in the availability of some drugs are sometimes noted in primary health care [PHC] centres in spite of the steady increase in the drug budgets in Tunisia. We conducted a survey therefore in 1998 in the health district of Monastir to study the availability of certain essential drugs [n = 15] in PHC centres and the main features of the drug prescription. We found that the drugs lacking were generally those prescribed for chronic diseases and as well as oral antibiotics. Antibiotic treatment constituted 71.8% of public prescriptions and 32.3% of these prescriptions were for an injectable treatment

Drugs, driving and traffic safety / edited by Robert E. Willette and J. Michael Walsh
Willette, Robert E; Walsh, J. Michael; World Health Organization ( 1983 )

Considers the problems associated with evaluating the effects of drugs on driving and traffic safety and suggests standardized approaches to further work in this field. Chapters evaluate problems of analytical toxicology and epidemiological research and discuss behavioural tests that have been developed to indicate impaired driving performance. Recommendations for systematic test procedures are put forward. The book also features brief sections on the role of public health authorities and the importance of international collaboration. Annexed to the report is an outline of analytical methods for detecting and identifying drugs in blood, urine, and saliva samples, giving sensitivity limits for certain classes of drugs. As an example of a notable effort to reduce accidents through public education, the concluding section records the Nordic Councils recommendations for labelling seven main classes of drugs and reproduces the text of a leaflet that is given to patients when these drugs are prescribed

Dual addictions, parallel treatments: nicotine replacement therapy for patients receiving methadone treatment in the Islamic Republic of Iran
Heydari, G.; Talischi, F.; Batmanghelidj, E.; Pajooh, MR.; Boroomand, A.; Zamani, M.; Salehi, A.; Maddah, S. ( 2013 )

This parallel, randomized, open-ended clinical trial tested the impact of nicotine replacement pharmacotherapy during the course of methadone treatment among opiate abusers. A total of 424 men entered the study at 4 drug treatment centres in Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran. The intervention group received a 6-week regimen of nicotine replacement pharmacotherapy at no charge. After 6 months, 211 persons [99.5%] in the control group continued to smoke and 1 person [0.5%] had quit. In the intervention group, 117 [55.1%] persons smoked, 15 [7.1%] persons had quit and 80 [37.7%] had reduced by more than 50% the number of cigarettes they smoked at the start of the study [P < 0.0001]. The findings suggest that the use of nicotine replacement pharmacology in tandem with methadone maintenance treatment can lead to dramatically improved efficacy for treatment of dual addictions

The Dubrovnik pledge on surveillance and prioritization of infectious diseases : report on a WHO meeting, Bucharest, Romania 21-23 November 2002
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2003 )

The Meeting was held to help carry out a project on communicable diseases in the seven countries in south-eastern Europe that signed the Dubrovnik Pledge. Experts from these countries went through a Delphi-like exercise in selecting a prioritized list of diseases to be included in a common surveillance system. The participants formed working groups to develop national plans of action to address problems in developing capacity for infectious disease investigation and diagnosis and developing political support. In addition, they were requested to form national working groups in their countries to assess the discussions held during the meeting, to review national requirements for communicable disease surveillance and to develop plans for future activities. In general, the participants agreed that assigning priorities to communicable diseases was a necessary first step to establishing collaboration on controlling them, and several presented plans for doing so in 2003. They also presented draft plans of action to address issues raised during the meeting, including carrying out prioritization exercises, developing standard case definitions and laboratory methods, reviewing training requirements and establishing political support for initiatives to control communicable diseases
