Nanomedicine is the actual useful biomedical sciene at present. The usefulness of nanomedicine can be in either diagnosis, treatment and prevention. It is no doubt that the nanomedicine become the worldwide issue. An interesting conern is on developing countries. The chance of the poor, developing countries to access new nanomedicine technology should be discussed. In addition, with the influx of new technology, assessment of effectiveness and safety is needed. With limitation of resource and knowledge, it seems developing countries can have risk for inequity in tehnology usage and also risk for uncontrolled quality of new coming nanomedicine tehnology and toxicity of new nanosubstance. Multidisciplinary collaboration to set global policies for management of the issue of present nanomedicine distribution in developing countries are needed.
