Globally, medicine regulatory authorities, research groups, international organisations, law enforcement agencies and other key stakeholders, including the pharmaceutical industry, are trying to keep patients safe and ensure that the benefits of modern medicine are delivered to patients. However, organisations working in this field tend to be fragmented with the wide diversity of professionals required to tackle this important issue, from chemists to lawyers, rarely discussing solutions together. Indeed, there has never been an opportunity for the diverse stakeholders involved in medicine quality and drug regulation to come together – within the framework of a specific academic conference – to share ideas and expertise, and to outline the coordinated steps that need to be taken to tackle the problem on an international scale.
Drawing on the achievements of our successful, annual, multidisciplinary course on the Quality of Medical Products & Public Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Boston University, The University of Oxford has organized a conference on Medicine Quality and Public Health.
