Fight The Fakes

Speak up about fake medicines.


IPSF Statement about falsified medicines at the WHO 144th Executive Board

International Pharmaceutical Students' Federation (IPSF) |

IPSF is lending its voice to over 350,000 pharmacy students and recent graduates in 90 countries worldwide and as members of Fight the Fakes campaign want to ‘raise awareness on the dangers of falsified medicines and empower people to act on this issue’. Further collaboration with WHO to drive forward the endeavours of its Member State Mechanism is seen as critical as IPSF believes in a ‘holistic approach encompassing collaboration between all stakeholders involved in the manufacture and distribution of medicines [as being] essential in our fight against substandard and falsified medicines’.
