IRACM – Institute of Research against Counterfeit Medicines

In the face of this scourge which directly threatens the health of hundreds of thousands of people and is endangering global health, the creation of a universal centre specially dedicated to the fight against health product counterfeiting emerged as a necessity. Created with this ambition in 2010, the international Institute of Research against Counterfeit Medicine (IRACM) is today the only independent international organization that is exclusively dedicated to the fight against counterfeiting and falsification of drugs, primarily through awareness-raising and training.

Face à ce fléau qui menace directement la santé de centaines de milliers de personnes et met en péril l’équilibre sanitaire mondial, créer un centre à vocation universelle spécialement dédié à la lutte contre la contrefaçon de produits de santé s’est imposé comme une nécessité. Né de cette ambition en 2010, l’Institut international contre la contrefaçon de médicaments constitue aujourd’hui le seul organisme international indépendant qui a pour vocation exclusive de lutter contre la contrefaçon et la falsification de médicaments et cela par le biais, notamment, de la sensibilisation et de la formation.
