CURRENT CONCERNS

Counterfeiting of pharmaceuticals is a worldwide phenomenon. The problem has grown over the years; international trading conditions as well as the use of sophisticated technology to mask fraudulent products make it more and more difficult to control this criminal act. Sharing of available information, a strong political will and a commitment to institute effective regulations against the counterfeiters, are some of the urgent measures needed in fighting this global menace.
