Partnership for Safe Medicines Interchange Conference Quote

By all accounts, the First Annual Interchange Partnership for Safe Medicines Interchange Conference was a huge success and a great step forward to coordinating a domestic agenda with all of the supply chain stakeholders in the fight against counterfeit drugs.

The following quote was by FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg during her keynote address at the conference:

“It is sad to realize that we live in a world in which some criminals are willing to maximize profits by placing poisons in products like infant formula, toothpaste and medically necessary drugs. But it is a reality we must face. And, more importantly, it is a reality that we must become more proactive in dealing with. “

Secure Pharma Chain is excited about the success of the conference and encourages all members of the pharmaceutical supply chain to protect their inventories and the consumer by deploying a variety of solutions and technologies.

Commissioner Hamburg’s admonition to become more proactive in the fight against this deadly crime of fraudulent, adulterated and counterfeit drugs is especially relevant with the emergence of a global pharmaceutical supply chain.
