Medicines We Can Trust

African woman and child

Everyone deserves medicine they can trust, but millions of people around the world lack access to quality medicines. Poor-quality medicines – those that are substandard or falsified – put lives at risk, cost economies billions of dollars and undermine decades of hard-earned health progress.

USP established and supports the Medicines We Can Trust campaign because we are committed to ensuring quality throughout the medicines supply chain, and because our impact grows exponentially when we work with others in the health community .

Medicines We Can Trust is a global campaign that seeks to highlight the human impact of poor-quality medicines, create a sense of urgency around poor-quality medicines, inspire collective action and unify a diverse and broad coalition of partners to advocate for the right to safe and quality medicines for everyone, everywhere.
