EDQM brochure " Open minds, free minds – No easy prey for counterfeit medicines and similarly dangerous medicines“

In 2015 the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and HealthCare (EDQM) published a brochure "Open minds, free minds", which contains a number of practical guidelines on how to protect public health from counterfeit medical products and similarly dangerous crimes.

In 2020 the Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED) prepared a translation of a shortened version of the brochure (available in Croatian), which contains an introductory part (Chapters 1 and 2) and two interactive comics aimed at raising awareness of the risks of counterfeit medical products and similarly dangerous crimes among among children aged 8-11 years (Attachment 1. Comic "Nikolinin spas") and adolescents aged 12-15 years (Appendix 2. Comic " Tinejdžerska iskušenja").
