US Chamber of Commerce Joins 'Protect Your Pharmacy Now!' Initiative
Date:5/2/2008

NCPA and Chamber's Global Intellectual Property Center Partner to

Combat Counterfeit Drugs

ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA), on the heels of the first annual "Protect Your Pharmacy Week" to highlight the issue of pharmacy robberies and burglaries, has partnered with the United States Chamber of Commerce Global Intellectual Property Center to combat counterfeited and pirated prescription drugs.

"Counterfeit drugs negatively impact the US economy, the pharmacy industry, and most importantly, public health. Unfortunately, counterfeit products are entering the healthcare system not only via the black market and rogue Internet sites, but through legitimate supply chains as well," said Bruce Roberts, R.Ph., executive vice president and CEO of NCPA. "Through this partnership with the Global Intellectual Property Center, we hope to better educate pharmacists in all practice settings regarding this dangerous trend."

"Counterfeit drugs threaten consumer safety as well as the jobs of those involved in the production and distribution of medicine - from the innovative researchers who create them to the trusted local pharmacist who sells them," said Caroline Joiner, executive director of the Chamber's Global Intellectual Property Center. "This partnership will enable us to spread the word about the growing danger of counterfeit medicines and their devastating consequences."

NCPA and the Global Intellectual Property Center will work together to provide factsheets, DVDs and other materials to inform independent pharmacies on the impact of counterfeit drugs and ways to protect themselves from piracy via authorized dealers, quality assurance programs, and secure transactions. NCPA will also join the Coalition Against Counterfeiting and Piracy (CACP), a group of nearly 500 associations and businesses, committed to increasing the understanding of the negative impact
