Fight the Fakes partner Partnership for Safe Medicines (PSM) India held it’s annual conference, “Patient Safety and Access to Quality Healthcare” on 6-8 November in Haridwar, India.
The conference, attended by over 200 participants from patient groups, medical and research cernters and government offices, highlighted fake medicines as a global crisis in need of multi-sectoral collaboration.
In India, as in many countries, patients lack the required information and resources to keep themselves safe. As a result, PSM India works to ensure a secure supply chain, regulated online pharmacies and worldwide collaboration in raising awareness of fake medicines for patients and caregivers.
