Safer Pharma


www.saferpharma.org
Pharmaceuticals in the environment are a global problem – more than 600 pharmaceuticals and their metabolites have been found in the environment worldwide.

They enter the environment (through water, soil, sludge, and organisms) at all stages of their life cycle and can end up in drinking water, and accumulate in fish, vegetables, and livestock.

This aim of the Safer Pharma campaign is to protect the environment from pharmaceutical pollution at all stage of their life cycle.

The Safer Pharma campaign is coordinated by Health Care Without Harm Europe, and aims to:

  • Challenge the pharmaceutical industry  to clean up their production
  • Raise awareness amongst healthcare professionals  about the 
impact of pharmaceuticals in the environment, encouraging rational 
prescription practices
  • Help citizens  to understand the impact of pharmaceuticals in the 
environment and how to safely dispose of unused medicine
  • Work towards transnational agreement  to ensure the minimisation of 
pharmaceuticals in the environment
