WHPA Counterfeit workshop 21-22 November 2011

As part of the World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA)’s counterfeit medical products campaign ‘Be Aware, Take Action’, WHPA is holding a two-day workshop on combating counterfeit medicines in Prague, Czech Republic, on 21-22 November 2011.

This meeting aims to bring together representatives of health professions organisations and relevant national and regional authorities to:

  • Share information on the situation of counterfeit medicines in the region, and share best practices and measures taken in different countries by the various health professions;
  • Debate how to encourage actions aimed at reducing the entry of counterfeit medicines in this region;
  • Consider sustained and collaborative action plans involving the various healthcare professions in each country participating in the workshop, to combat counterfeit medicines continuously for the next 12 months;
  • Reach a collective commitment to give priority to the issue of counterfeit medicines through a regional "WHPA Call to Action", as a commitment and collaboration of the health care professions in this serious problem.
