Safe Medicine-Disposal Campaign Launches in Europe

June 5, 2015.

A European social media campaign has launched to educate the public on how to dispose of unused or expired medicines correctly. #medsdisposal is part of a collaborative effort between European healthcare stakeholders, the pharma industry and student organizations, designed to tackle effectively the potential negative impact of pharmaceuticals in the environment. 

The #medsdisposal campaign will raise awareness and collate information about the scheme in a single portal (medsdisposal.eu). A video that gives advice on how to dispose of unused and out-of-date medicines responsibly is also available here: https://youtu.be/KJCDrCkylnE
