Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce (IMPACT)

This global coalition of stakeholders — international and nongovernmental organizations, drug manufacturers and regulatory authorities —was set up by the WHO and works globally to tackle the production, trade and sale of counterfeit medical products. The website publishes information about the organisation’s activities and five working groups of experts that focus on specific aspects of the problem. It also provides a list of resources, including recommendations on raising awareness about the issue.  Through IMPACT, the WHO has developed guidelines for measures to combat counterfeit medicines, which are also available on the website.
