Abstract

The 8th World Congress of Clinical Pharmacology and
Therapeutics was held in Brisbane in August 2004. There
were 940 participants from 60 countries, with Japan, Germany,
Korea, South Asia and the United Kingdom well represented.
The Congress featured three themes: Medicines and
Society; Therapeutic Horizons; and Drug Discovery, Development
and Disposition. Our report focuses on the Medicines and Society
theme, which was strongly emphasised at the 8th Congress,
differentiating it from previous Congresses. The prominence of this
theme was to encourage the participation of clinical pharmacologists
from South Asia and the Pacific regions, where access to
lifesaving medicines and confidence in their quality are matters of
everyday importance. The Congress also sought to encourage
clinical pharmacologists from the developed world to engage with
the serious global inequities in access to medicines for the major
infectious diseases in the developing world, such as tuberculosis,
malaria and HIV/AIDs, as well as the emerging developed-world
lifestyle disorders, notably cardiovascular disease.
