As the world gets smaller and more connected, quality issues affect everyone. Diseases travel. Drug resistance grows. Fake medicines kill. The foundation of quality we’re building helps address these and other global health issues. Whether decreasing the prevalence of substandard and poor-quality medicines or helping to curb antimicrobial resistance, we’re there working to protect the health of people all over the world.
Governments and health policy makers around the world need more data about the benefits of quality medicine to make strategic decisions about where to invest scarce resources. The USP Quality Institute will provide much-needed research and data to enable evidence-based policy decisions that can help increase the availability of quality medicines everywhere, helping to build a foundation for a healthier world.
Millions of people around the world lack access to quality medicines they can trust, putting lives at risk, costing economies billions and undermining decades of hard-earned health progress. The Medicines We Can Trust campaign is raising awareness about poor-quality and counterfeit medicines to make sure everyone has access to safe, quality medicines.
