On 4th February 2022, Fight the Fakes will join World Cancer Day to create a future without cancer and raise awareness about the threat of falsified medicines for cancer care! The World Health Organisation reported falsified versions of all categories of medicines, from generics to innovative medicines for cancer, and sadly such reports continue to surface.
This year’s campaign from the Union for International Cancer Control will speak up for equity in access to cancer care. While we live in a time of awe-inspiring advancements in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, many who seek cancer care hit barriers at every turn, because of where they live or who they are, factors that may also lead to increased risks of getting falsified and substandard medicines. Equal access to cancer care is fundamental, as is keeping patients safe from falsified and substandard medicines for cancer.
