Mission, Strategy & Goals

Mission statement

 “Together we will create an environment that enables patients to buy their medicines online safely (where permitted by law)”

Strategy statement

 "Our coalition will champion, drive and support powerful outcome-oriented initiatives that will make the buying of medicines online as safe as possible"

 Goals

An early objective for the coalition will be to develop and issue a ‘call for action’ inviting the European authorities to evaluate policies and legal measures to tackle illegal online sales and launch a dialogue with key stakeholders including internet intermediaries to take action against illegal online pharmacies.  The coalition will play a valuable role in demonstrating broad-based support for urgent action to tackle this patient safety threat. It should rapidly become a trusted partner of the authorities as measures are developed to deal with illegal online pharmacies.
