Pharma Security Asia 2019

February 19February 20

The importance of the pharmaceutical industry in the modern-day Asian society cannot be over stressed especially as there are new diseases springing up from different areas, strengthening the importance of adequate drug research and development activities. However, with the growth of the industry in Asia comes the increase in fake drugs. In recent times, these products are still being produced and passed down to consumers in large quantities amidst the impact of the various counterfeiting hubs that have been seen to operate on a global scale. According to World Health Organization (WHO), about ten to thirty percent of the pharmaceuticals distributed to most third world countries are fake and this industry is growing at an alarming rate, even faster than legitimate pharmaceutical companies raking in about $217 billion yearly in sales.
