Global Regulatory Frameworks for Online Pharmacies

To address the rising cost of medicines, patients and policymakers are increasingly turning to personal importation through Internet Pharmacies. Despite their potential to improve access to affordable medicines, most countries do not sufficiently regulate Internet Pharmacies, exacerbating public health risks.

This project convenes stakeholders, including the Canadian Internet Pharmacy Association & PharmacyChecker.org, to establish model legislation regulating online pharmacies, including the .pharmacy domain. It led to the drafting of the Brussels Principles on the Sale of Medicines over the Internet.
