The importance of global factors on drug supply and policy discussions are evident in this year’s analysis, while local patterns of use and responses to problems are both at the forefront of new trends. The boundary between the market categories of ‘old’ and new drugs is becoming harder to define, and just as new drugs increasingly mimic established substance types, so responses to new drugs may mirror evidence-based responses to problems with established drugs.
