Of the 1mil deaths per year due to #malaria, 200,000 could be avoided if patients weren't treated with #fakemeds
The World Health Organization and its member states have identified substandard/spurious/falsely-labelled/falsified/counterfeit (SSFFC) medical products as a serious risk to patients and public health, and in 2012 set up the Member State mechanism to align national efforts against these dangerous products. Reports on the mechanism thus far show achievements made at global regional and national level to combat this issue.
SSFFC products were discussed today at the 68th World Health Assembly by delegates. Fight the Fakes is pleased to announce statements from partner IFPMA and FIP on substandard/spurious/falsely-labelled/falsified/counterfeit (SSFFC) medical products, which can be found below.
