Smedpack is Sweden’s proactive response to the discovery of counterfeit medicines discovered in the stock of legal pharmacies in other countries. The project has collected end users’ views on how they currently use medicines, what opportunities they see for improvement and what they think about security issues.
Counterfeit medicines are not a problem in Sweden yet, but will probably become. The project has used workshop scenarios where the partners have cooperated and discussed different future scenarios. The consortium including all stakeholders in the value chain has helped everyone understanding each other´s concerns and perspectives.
