About euthanasia kits?
Although euthanasia kits are currently available in Belgian pharmacies, major questions continue to be raised over the origin of this project.

In September 2004, a report published by the Belgian assessment committee for the law decriminalising euthanasia estimated the number of declared euthanasia cases within the first 15 months of the law's application to be 259, with 40% carried out in the home. Euthanasia supporters expressed their "disappointment" at these figures. They blamed doctors' lack of training and insufficient information of the population who, if better informed, would be more "in demand".

The ADMD (Association for the right to die with dignity) together with the Assessment Committee concluded that it was urgent and necessary to "inform" the public more widely and to train doctors to carry out euthanasia. On 15 November 2004 , this association therefore created a medical help and support "Forum" for doctors facing the difficult problems related to the end of life and requests for euthanasia. Its goal is to intervene where doctors have problems obtaining advice from a colleague as laid down by the law and to train doctors who can then provide guidance themselves. By the end of 2004, 69 doctors had joined the Forum. The ADMD distributed around 1,000 copies of a Euthanasia brochure to the medical community. These initiatives were backed by government funding.

Multipharma, a pharmaceutical wholesaler, was appointed the "dedicated" supplier of dispensaries to assist doctors in carrying out euthanasia more easily with "guaranteed results" through "an optimal solution".
