We are proud to announce the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) as a new partner of the Fight the Fakes campaign!
In order to equip the next generation of pharmacists with the knowledge and experience to combat the global and growing problem of fake medicines, IPSF teaches pharmaceutical students about the prevalence and dangers of medicine counterfeiting.
As a resource for those studying to be pharmacists, IPSF has founded the Anti-Counterfeit Drug Campaign (ACDC), aiding students in creating advocacy campaigns around the world.
“IPSF believes that teaching pharmaceutical students about the prevalence and dangers of fake medicines is essential,” says Radoslaw Mitura, IPSF President. “We’re coordinating our efforts with partners of the Fight the Fakes campaign to equip the next generation of pharmacists with the knowledge and experience to combat the growing global problem of fake medicines.”
