Chapter 8: The challenge of curtailing the escalation of counterfeit pharmaceuticals

Peggy E. Chaudhry

Abstract

In this chapter, the discussion centers around the size and growth of illegitimate pharmaceuticals; the porous supply chain in both physical and virtual markets, which allows illicit traders to penetrate (or circumvent) the licit trade of pharmaceuticals; a succinct clarification of both formal organized crime groups and informal illicit traders fueling the supply; the evolution of agencies designed to govern and enforce this type of criminal activity; and an array of anti-counterfeiting tactics designed to curb this major problem.
