By scanning a QR code, the new programme enables consumers to verify the legitimacy of medications
Tatmeen, the first track-and-trace platform in the UAE, securely enables users to scan a QR code on a medical or pharmaceutical product and track its progress from the production stage to the patient, obviating the possibility of drug-related fatalities.
The programme was started by the Ministry of Health and Prevention to protect the general public’s health and enhance healthcare security.
From the point of manufacture until the patient receives the product, pharmaceutical and medical products can be reliably tracked and traced using the “Tatmeen” platform for medicines control.
