This week Fight the Fakes will be in London raising awareness of fake medicines at our partner the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers’ (IFPW) General Membership Meeting (15-16 Sept). We will be on hand to explain the risks fake medicines pose to public health and individuals to supply chain experts from around the world.
With the help of students from UCL School of Pharmacy, we’ll have a booth that’s both fun and informative, sharing information with passers-by and inviting them to test their knowledge of fake medicines. Only through collaboration across the entire medicines supply chain can we make sure patients are not at risk of receiving fake medicines.
