Communication/Conferences: The requirement for an international treaty on counterfeit medicines

April 2, 2014 - fightthefakes.org

The Global Forum on Access to Safe Medicines, took place in London from 2 to 4 April 2014. It grouped together numerous actors of the fight against counterfeit medicines; associations, customs officers, pharmaceutical industries, doctors. During this forum, Bernard Leroy, head of the IRCAM, pleaded in favor of an international treaty on counterfeit medicines. An international harmonization of the laws and definitions of this practice would help the authorities in their fight.
