“All you need to know about Spurious Medicines”, A Guidebook


The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), in cooperation with the Indian Pharmaceutical Association, has developed a handbook for healthcare professionals entitled “All you need to know about spurious medicines”, which contains tips on preventing and detecting counterfeit medicines as well as advice on how to minimise the threat and change behaviours.

Launched as part of the WHPA campaign on March 30th, 205 in New Delhi, the handbook aims to raise awareness and develop competencies of healthcare professionals in the prevention of spurious medicines in the supply chain, their detection and their ability to communicate this issue to patients and key partners.
