Why a no-deal Brexit means more fake pharma

August 21, 2019

Medicines are the most common medical intervention used across the UK and Europe. Unfortunately, falsified or fake medicines are entering global supply chains and have become a leading public health concern worldwide. It is, therefore, vital that there are systems in place to stop the manufacturing and trade of falsified medicines that may contain ingredients (including active ingredients) that are a non-pharmaceutical grade, at incorrect dosages or even contain no active substance. These counterfeit medicines are a leading threat to public health globally with seizures by authorities increasing substantially each year.
