USP Welcomes New Partners to "Fight the Fakes" Campaign



As part of an ongoing international effort to battle counterfeit medicines, the US Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) welcomed 11 new organizations as partners in the global “Fight the Fakes” campaign.

“Counterfeit medicines can account for up to 30% of the drug supply in parts of Asia, Africa, and Latin America according to estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO),” said USP CEO Ron Piervincenzi.

Established in 2013, Fight the Fakes is a campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of fake medicines, giving a voice to those who have been personally impacted and sharing the stories of those working to put a stop to this public health threat. The Fight the Fakes initiative now includes 25 healthcare groups, research institutes, foundations, non-profits, and private sector organizations.
