How safe are your medicines? Raising public awareness is critical to Internet patient safety.

Health
Date: Tuesday, 26 June 2018 10:00 - 12:00

Venue: European Parliament, Room ASP 5E3  |  City: Ixelles, Belgium

The event will take place on Tuesday 26 June 2018, from 10:00 to 12:00, in the European Parliament, in Brussels. 

 

The manufacture and distribution of falsified medicines is a growing public health risk with an untold cost to lives. Vast profits are made by organised criminals who will use the proceeds to support other criminal activities. The Internet provides the ideal channel to buy illegally distributed fake medicines. A lack of consumer/patient awareness by a mostly unwitting public is creating the perfect environment for over 35,000 illegally operating websites.

The adoption of the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD January 2013) will make the legitimate supply chain more secure and controlled. The FMD also requires all Member States to sell medicines 'at a distance' and so any website selling a medicine must be registered and display a Common EU-wide Logo.

In addition, Article 85d of the FMD legally obliges the Commission and each Member State to actively publicise the meaning of the Common Logo and that of a falsified medicine. At this moment, there is wide variation across Member States in implementing this article.

Join the roundtable discussion on how this important legal obligation can be implemented and supported. Raising public awareness about how to obtain medicines safely on the Internet is vital to protect all European citizens.

The event programme will be available soon.
