Global Opioid Use Disorder Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The World Health Organization (WHO) designated the illness caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which first appeared in Wuhan (province of Hubei, China), in the last months of 2019, as "coronavirus disease 2019" or COVID-19. This virus spreads quickly, and had a serious negative impact on the economies, social behaviors, and healthcare of every country in the world.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to the lockdown, several countries such as India, China, Brazil, and others faced problems regarding transportation of things from one place to another.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic had negative impact on the global opioid use disorder market, as patients with opioid use disorder had limited access to opioid treatment programs during the COVID-19 public health emergency, whereas access to buprenorphine, an opioid drug treatment, remained undisrupted. For instance, on July 28, 2022, according to the report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the U.S. National Library of Medicine reported that the proportion of patients reaching 90-day retention on buprenorphine treatment decreased significantly from 49.6% to 47.7% in the U.S. in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the supply and distribution of drugs was negatively impacted due to the COVID-19 lockdown and restrictions. For instance, in June 2021, according to an article published by United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), a United Nations office, the distribution of naloxone was negatively affected in about 57%of countries. However, according to the same source, regulatory authorities in several regions reduced barriers to access certain medicines, by permitting greater use of telehealth services for drugs such as naloxone, methadone, or buprenorphine.
