Belgium: "euthanasia kits" on sale in pharmacies
Belgian general practitioners will soon be able to obtain a "kit" from pharmacies containing the products and injection equipment necessary to practise euthanasia in the home. The cost of the kit is around 60 euros and, given their dangerousness, doctors are required to report any unused products to the pharmacy, explained Belgian daily, Le Soir.

In September 2002, Belgium became the second country after the Netherlands to decriminalise euthanasia. The law specifies that euthanasia can only be practised if the patient is "constantly suffering physically or psychologically" as a result of an "accidental or pathologically incurable affliction" and is "in a hopeless medical situation". The RT1-TVi television channel recalled that 40% of euthanasia cases in Belgium are carried out in the home.
