Today, the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies, a new coalition of organizations committed to Internet pharmacy safety, launched its website. LegitScript is a founding member of the organization. ASOP seeks to represent all stakeholders who have an interest in protecting patient safety by preventing access to illegal online drug sellers and ensuring patient access to safe and legitimate online pharmacies.
Alliance members include the American Pharmacists Association, Eli Lilly and the National Chain Drug Store Association. Participant observers to the organization include the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, National Health Council and Partnership for Safe Medicines. Interested organizations that support the mission of the Alliance can apply for membership to the Alliance.
Additionally, the Alliance website contains a “Safe Online Pharmacies 101” section, giving Internet users a resource to ask a question about online pharmacies.
LegitScript is proud to be a founding member of the Alliance and looks forward to partnering with current and future Alliance members and observers to help make the Internet a safer place for those who choose to fill a prescription online.
