How CPPI Is Gaining More Support On Social Media

Social Media SupportCPPI has definitely made a lot of progress with regards to their cause via social media as well as the web. Through this, the organization has managed to engage the American patients and consumers thoroughly. They have included the use of Facebook, Twitter, and CPPI’s own website to place ads, be more open, honest, and communicative. They have also recently started getting in touch with organizations that they hope would offer their support to them.

User Engagement Through Social Media

Ever since the Facebook page has been launched, the likes have continued increasing day by day and the overall response has been overwhelming. Facebook posts are made regularly and these posts talk about the pertaining issues that need to be resolved, such as the importance of having talks with the members of Congress.

CPPI’s Twitter profile has managed to do the same and has driven a significant amount of traffic with a comprehensive engagement on social media.

When it comes to the CPPI website, there have been banner ads placed that have been viewed by a lot of people and notable actions have been taken in relation to these banner ads.

Many individuals (197 people so far) have also signed up for newsletters of CPPI. And it is believed that this number will likely grow considering that the cause has so much social media support already. Also, the great thing about social media is that if one person is supporting a specific cause, then they will likely share it with the people in their network as well. When something is shared on social media, more people automatically get to know about it, resulting in more support.

Supporters To The Cause

There is a small group of allied organizations that are offering support to the cause. These include the National Hispanic Council on Aging, National Alliance for Caregiving, and National Indian Council on Aging. Follow-ups will be conducted with these organizations. Apart from these, there are also five to six organizations that have been identified for offering potential support for the cause. These include the National Retirees Legislative Network, Mayo Clinic, Pew Center Health Care Project, as well as Center for American Progress.

CPPI understands how important it is to keep the members engaged, especially through social media. When they have a large following, they will most likely be able to create a lot more awareness for their cause and reach out to a lot more people. The best part is that many of the Americans relate closely with their cause and the efforts that they are putting in to make sure that the citizens can get access to affordable and high quality medications from Canada.

The Truth About ASOP Claims

W

A project known as the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP) was initiated to offer protection to American consumers against the risks associated with online drug purchasing. However, ASOP give Americans information that favors their funders all under the umbrella of protecting Americans.

The truth is that Big Pharma is the founder of ASOP. The fact that Big Pharma is among the most profitable organizations in the world mean they are willing to do everything in their power to maintain that position including using scare tactics.

It is true that some online pharmacies are rogue and getting rid of them requires collective efforts. However, ASOP gives the impression that any online pharmacy that is not owned by Americans is rogue and is out to harm Americans which is not the case. They employ distorted “statistical analysis” in scaring people from purchasing drugs from online pharmacies. Therefore, they make folks believe that the only way of buying safe medications is by choosing American online pharmacies.

There is evidence to prove otherwise and this is in form of many harmless and valid online pharmacies in Canada that have supplied Americans with safe medicine for years. We can attest to this fact because we know many patients who have relied on these pharmacies for their different ailments for years and have never experienced any harmful health effects.

FaegreBD which is a big lobbying firm in Washington DC is responsible for running ASOP. They have many clients both past and present and some of them include Baxter Healthcare, the Pharmaceutical Distribution Security Alliance (PDSA), Eli Lilly and Orexigen among others. These are “big clients” with a lot of influence capable of swaying decisions in their favor. For example, PSDA consists of over 25 stakeholders all found in the pharmaceutical distribution supply.

Big Pharma receives support from NABP, ASOP and so on and claim to care about the big number of people (100,000-700,000) who succumb to illness from counterfeit drugs purchased online yearly. ASOP adds that they are committed to protecting patients globally from the harmful effects of counterfeit drugs in order to provide patients with safe and approved medicine which they can access through the legitimate pharmacies. They go on to say this is their top priority.

Though this may seem fair, our concern is that, “Why don’t they apply the same rage when there are folks harmed by pharmacies approved by VIPPS? This mostly happens through dispensing errors committed and this end up harming American patients. They don’t seem to use the same cry for safety in these cases when those they claim to be their members approve and encourage the production and distribution of medications for unapproved purposes.

Safety of medications is an important issue and should resonate throughout the entire pharmaceutical supply chain. This priority should never be substituted for a greater “hunger” for more profits. We do not dispute the claims made by ASOP but they should be unwavering in their pursuit of ensuring the safety of American patients regardless of who is invlved.
