This group of mainly not-for-profit organisations works to protect consumers from counterfeit medicines. The website publishes an encyclopaedia of counterfeit drug incidents documenting details of where, when and how counterfeit drugs or other medical products have been identified in the legitimate drug supply around the world. Press releases, news articles, resources on online pharmacy regulations and contact details of experts in the field are free to access. The site also features relevant research articles and includes a guide advising pharmacists on how to be alert to counterfeit medicines.
This microsite from the Wellcome Trust — a global charitable foundation based in the UK — publishes information on the counterfeit drugs trade, focussing on how it affects both developed and developing countries. In 2009 the organisation held a conference with the American Pharmaceutical Group, which carries out research and development for drugs affecting developing countries, to discuss how to combat counterfeiting, raise awareness and reach consensus on the major challenges. A report summarising the meeting is made available on the site, which also includes presentations and video interviews with key participants.
