On Friday, September 19th, the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP) hosted its second annual roundtable with participating partner organizations to discuss matters pertaining to the protection of consumer health and safety through the elimination of illegitimate online pharmacies. The speakers covered a range of topics including law enforcement collaborations, criminal trends and arising issues, Operation Pangea outcomes and impacts, technical innovations, and the evolving landscape and approach of the online pharmacy industry.

Additionally, CSIP highlighted consumer education efforts including Fight the Fakes initiatives and U.S. Pharmacopeial ‘s (USP) work in Ghana, which represents the organizations’ global commitment to improving public health and access to safe medicines.
