Abstract

Unregulated supply of medicines compromises quality assurance and risks patient safety. The emergence of illegal medicines trafficking in Morocco presents a major health threat, which highlights the need for region-wide alignment in policies to drive stringent regulatory enforcement and robust health systems that ensure population- wide access to safe medicines. Herein, we draw on insights from a situational analysis in Morocco, as a lower- middle income setting, to present access to medicines through regulated supply procedures as a vital prerequisite for quality assurance and patient safety.
