On 28 and 29 June 2021, the IP Key South-East Asia (SEA) Project organised a webinar on ‘Combatting Counterfeit Medicines, Medical Devices and Protective Equipment.’ The webinar highlighted the dangers and, at times, fatal risks posed by counterfeit medicines, medical devices and protective equipment, emphasising the global impact of this problem during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event brought to light the important role that IPRs play in promoting the health and safety of consumers worldwide and the need for international cooperation in the present public health crisis with the dangers brought about by counterfeit medicines remaining a global concern.
