Communication/Conference: Sanofi Anti-Counterfeiting Day mobilizes Group affiliates for the fight

June 6th, 2016 - www.en.sanofi.com

Again this year, Sanofi held its international Anti-Counterfeiting Day in most of its affiliates to continue a mission of informing its employees of the dangers of faked medicines and their trafficking across the globe.

This day designed to increase awareness and knowledge was held on 6 June 2016 at the Sanofi headquarters in Paris and thereafter repeated throughout the Group’s affiliates. Anti-Counterfeiting Day is an opportunity to review the major initiatives deployed to rein in the threat of fake drugs, for both the group and the world. The event provides employees with the knowledge they need to understand this scourge and increase the awareness of their friends and families as to the progression of counterfeiting in the market and on the web and its significant impact on public health, including its role in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people each year.

To fight this battle, the main stakeholders in healthcare are committing and organizing. Over the past decade, the international community has worked to identify distribution networks, seize faked products, increase public awareness and diffuse facts, and it will continue to do so for as long as it takes.
