Speak up about fake medicines.


IAMAT’s new guide: Travelling with Medications

International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers (IAMAT) |

Our partner the International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers (IAMAT) just released the new guide ‘Travelling with Medications‘ which provides advice on navigating medication regulations, importing controlled substances, packing medication for travel, and how to safely find medication abroad. 

It includes a section on how to ensure that the medication you buy is safe and it alerts travellers of not purchasing medications from unlicensed pharmacies, street vendors, or online stores. Fight the Fakes was happy to contribute an infographic to the guide to illustrate the dangers of falsified medicines.

You can access the full guide here.
