Abstract: The World Health Organization Regional office for Europe organized a workshop with countries of central and eastern Europe and the newly independent states (CCEE and NIS) to discuss and analyse the different aspects related to drug information, to review the existing situation of drug information and to promote the establishment and the further development of strategies and programmes aimed at providing clear, updated and unbiased drug information to professionals, as well as the patient. Drug regulators, drug policy makers and professionals participated. The workshop provided an overview and basic information on the issues and different strategies involved in drug information. It showed, in an international perspective, how governments can deal and actively intervene in this area to guarantee that the users are well informed. As a result of the workhop the participants have exchanged their views and experiences on the major issues in drug information in their countries. Practical and feasible recommendations on the provision and use of drug information were drawn up. Follow-up on the implementation of these recommendations at country and intercountry level will be done with the assistance of the Programme for Pharmaceuticals
