2011: European Customs retained 27.5 million #fakemeds
The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA) has launched a comprehensive online resource on tackling falsified medicines.
The online platform describes IFPMA’s positioning and activities on many of the issues related to medicines’ falsification. Structured into five sections, it provides a user-friendly, comprehensive interpretation of all aspects of this global challenge that need to be addressed: from strengthening legislative frameworks and regulatory systems, collecting data, implementing effective technologies, to raising awareness.
This new platform is also the “go-to-place” to find IFPMA resources developed over the past years, often in collaboration with sister organizations and partners.
