Fake medicines increasingly put patients and the general public at risk across the world. In response to this challenge, ten global health organisations, including ICN, have joined forces to raise awareness about the dangers of fake medicines. The Fight the Fakes (www.fightfakes.org) campaign will create a global movement of organisations and individuals that will speak up and help spread the word about this under-reported, yet growing crime.
