Last week, dotHealth joined the executive board of The Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP). CSIP companies work together to protect consumers from the dangers of fake online pharmacies through collaboration with law enforcement, promotion of corporate citizenship and consumer education.
Marjorie Clifton, the Executive Director of CSIP, recognized the importance of the mission of dotHealth and the significance of their part in the organization’s membership coalition. “We are thrilled to welcome dotHealth to our executive board. They join our upstanding group of companies focused on keeping consumers safe from illicit pharmacy websites. We are so pleased to have their expertise and vision as part of the important work of CSIP.”
dotHealth joins an array of representatives from across the internet ecosystem who form the executive board of CSIP. Other members include major online search and ad providers Google Microsoft, and Yahoo!, credit card and payments technology giants MasterCard, Discover and PayPal, global delivery service provider UPS, and worldwide social media leader Facebook.
These member organizations, many of which date back to CSIP’s founding in 2011, provide strategic support and guidance for the work of CSIP as it promotes and encourages safe online pharmacies through education, enforcement, and information sharing. These efforts included the recent launch of an online pharmacy verification website – VerifyBeforeYouBuy.org – and a prescription drug savings portal – SaveOnMyMeds.org
“We are committed to protecting consumers online and are fortunate to join other industry-leading organizations who are leading the charge,” explains Jose Ignacio Rasco, CEO of dotHealth. “Becoming a member of CSIP aligns with our goals, among them, ensuring credible, meaningful health-related content on .health domains.”
