Communication/Conference: FDA asks all medical professionals to “know your source” to protect patients from fake drugs

September 24th 2014 - www.safemedicines.org

The FDA launched a new communication campaign “Know Your Source: Protecting Patients from Unsafe Drugs” oriented towards the professionals of the health industry.
The goal of the campaign is to educate the pharmaceutical professionals and other medical professions responsible for wholesale purchases about the danger of purchasing medication from “rogue” wholesalers.
The campaign reinforces the message that only state-licensed wholesale distributors as well as FDA-approved medicines can guarantee the safety of the treatment prescribed to patients.
