Collaboration on Medicines Education
The UKK Institute and the Finnish Medicines Agency Fimea collaborate on medicines education of children and young people. The medicines education material drawn up by Fimea was published on the Terve koululainen website in January 2022.
The aim of the collaboration is to better reach the target group of the material, in other words, teachers and pupils in comprehensive school, and to convey reliable and unbiased information on the pharmaceutical sector to citizens.

- assignments, most of which can be completed by the pupils themselves on any device with an internet connection.
- the assignments has been divided for upper comprehensive school and lower comprehensive school.
- the material is available in Finnish, Swedish and, to a certain extent, in English.
