Committee Of Ministers Paves Way For Global ‘Medicrime’ Treaty

Governments across the world will be urged to sign up to a new Council of Europe treaty criminalizing the manufacture and supply of counterfeit medical products.

The organisation announced today the adoption by its Committee of Ministers of the ‘Medicrime’ Convention.

It could have a “potentially universal dimension” due to the global scale of the threat posed to health care systems by fake drugs. Experts claim the manufacture and sale of counterfeit medical products is now 15 times more lucrative than heroin smuggling.
