Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

European Alliance for Access to Safe Medicines (EAASM)

This organisation, with members from the public and private sector, aims to promote patient safety and raise awareness about the problem of counterfeit medicines. The website offers advice on detecting counterfeit medicines in the local pharmacy or online — by noticing whether a tablet has an unusual smell or taste, for example. It also provides an overview of counterfeit medicines, features relevant news stories and outlines the technological tools that manufacturers or pharmacists can use to detect fake drugs.
