The Council of Europe – through its Criminal Law Division – is supporting countries worldwide in the strengthening of their criminal justice capacities to respond to the challenges posed by the falsification of medicines and medical devices on the basis of the MEDICRIME Convention.

Jointly with the European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP Programme), the Criminal Law Division has developed a training curriculum aimed at increasing the capacity of judges, prosecutors and lawyers capacities to improve the national implementation of the MEDICRIME Convention in those countries having ratified it.

These training programmes are included as part of the initial and/or on-going training within both the national schools of judges and prosecutors.
