Accurate journalistic reporting is essential to ensure that the public are aware of the dangers of falsified and substandard medicines but are not discouraged from taking appropriate medicines and seeking medical advice. Therefore, the 2018 Global Health Journalism Fellowship invited outstanding young journalists to participate in the first ever international conference on Medicine Quality and Public Health at the University of Oxford, from 23-28 September.

The proliferation of poor quality medical products (medicines, vaccines and devices) is an important but neglected public health problem, threatening millions of lives in developing and developed countries.

This conference brought together over 200 stakeholders from academia, NGOs, private sector organisations and policy-makers to discuss the opportunities to strengthen international collaboration in medicine quality and how to provide more high quality evidence. It provided a unique opportunity for talented journalists to network with international experts and forge stronger connections between scientists, policy-makers and journalists.
