The Brussels Principles on the Sale of Medicines Over the Internet is an initiative of the Prescription Justice Institute (PJI), a New York-based, tax deductible non-profit organization. PJI’s mission is to advocate for, research, and build public awareness about online access to safe and affordable medications and personal importation.
While it is well-known that there are dangerous websites that sell substandard and/or falsified medicine intentionally and/or due to negligence, there are many online pharmacies that follow good standards of practice in accordance with their local or international regulations. When the Internet can facilitate safe access to affordable medicines, international organizations, countries, private companies, and non-governmental organizations must assist in collectively deterring dangerous rogue online ‘pharmacies’.
The Brussels Principles were created by academics, activists, companies, Internet policy experts, NGOs, and trade associations, who know that the Internet has helped millions of patients safely access affordable medicines, including obtaining them internationally through personal importation.
