The proliferation of fake drugs, a global scourge particularly affecting developing countries, needs to implement sustainable solutions. According to the professor of biomedical engineering at Boston University, Muhammad Hamid Zaman, the fight against falsified medicines should be led by governments, health authorities and policymakers but also by students, entrepreneurs, researchers seeking local, original and adapted solutions to the needs of their societies. Indeed, it is by developing public-private partnerships with local entrepreneurs and inventors, strengthening links between universities and national industries that innovative solutions will be found and limit the problem of falsification of medicines.
