    Conference Focus

    Counterfeit drugs pose a huge threat to the public health worldwide. They are also great challenge for the pharmaceutical industries. The WHO International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce (IMPACT) estimates that in many developing countries more than 30 percent of medicines may be counterfeit.

    The impacts of these illegal drugs are significantly high. The problem is not limited to developing countries but also rampant in the US and EU. With growth in Internet and online marketing the problem has escalated multiple folds.

    Thus, strategies and technologies that can stop the entry of counterfeit medicines into the supply chain and from reaching the patients becomes very significant. Anti-counterfeiting technologies thus provides product authentication and tracking though the supply chain that prevents the entry of counterfeit medicines. As we know this fight is never ending since counterfeiters present us with new challenges through growing sophisticated technologies.

    This platform provides all with an opportunity to interact with regulatory, industry experts and delegates to exchange their experiences on numerous facets of anti-counterfeiting system.
