Ten Global Health Organizations United in a Worldwide Campaign to Protect Patients from Fake Medicines
Date:11/26/2013

GENEVA, November 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

 

  • Fake medicines put patients and the general public at risk. Patients believe they are receiving genuine treatment, but instead they are getting potentially dangerous products that could increase resistance to real treatments, and cause further illness, disability or even death.
  • Fight the Fakes campaign (http://www.fightthefakes.org) will raise awareness about the dangers of fake medicines by giving a voice to those who have been personally impacted and sharing the stories of those working to put a stop to this threat to public health.
  • Organizations and individuals are invited to join the campaign and speak up to help spread the word about the dangers of fake medicines. Addressing this health threat requires public awareness and coordinated actions by all relevant actors globally.
  • Fight the Fakes supports the World Health Organisation (WHO) Mechanism to combat Substandard/Spurious/Falsely-labelled/Falsified/Counterfeit Medical Products and calls for international, multi-stakeholder collaboration under WHO's leadership.

Fake medicines increasingly put patients and the general public at risk across the world. In response to this challenge, ten partners[1] who represent healthcare professionals, disease-specific organizations, product-development partnerships, foundations, international financing institutions, as well as the research-based pharmaceutical industry have joined forces to raise awareness about the dangers of fake medicines.

The Fight the Fakes (http://www.fightthefakes.org) campaign will create a global movement of organizations and individuals that will speak up and help spread the word about this under-reported, yet growing threat to publi
