To be efficient, the fight against counterfeit drugs at the international level must go beyond repressive measures to include more and more targeted and concerted actions in the fields of information, prevention and training. This is one of the fundamental reasons behind the creation of the Institute.
IRACM brings together and trains the committed actors in the fight against fake medicines, centralizes knowledge, good practices and know-how and serves as a proactive interlocutor and advisory body proposing advice and solutions to national and international political and judiciary authorities.
Since its inception, IRACM has become a center of excellence in its field of competence.
- To serve as a proactive interlocutor and advisory body proposing advice and solutions to national and international political and judiciary authorities.
- To centralize knowledge, good practices and know-how in the fight against counterfeit drugs.
- To train and federate the stakeholders (doctors, pharmacists, customs officers, police agents, health regulators) engaged in the fight against the trafficking of fake drugs.
- To inform and educate as many people as possible about the risks (health, economic, legal) related to the counterfeiting of medicines and health products.
