“The annual Interchange brings together policymakers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, patient advocates, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, and anti-counterfeiting companies to discuss the problem and solutions to the global scourge of pharmaceutical counterfeiting.”
Last Friday I attended the first annual Partnership For Safe Medicines (PSM)Interchange 2010 event. PSM is a coalition of organizations that are committed to the safety of prescription drugs and protecting consumers against unapproved, counterfeit, substandard, mishandled or otherwise unsafe medicines. PSM was started a few years ago to help educate healthcare professionals and the public about the dangers of counterfeit and other illegitimate drugs. It is based in Vienna, VA but focuses on the problem globally. The membership is made up of professional organizations from industry, universities and government.
