Did You Know?

This fascinating clip presents forward looking statistics and trends in a compelling way.

The presentation allows the viewer to look forward and consider the opportunities. Although not specific to the pharmaceutical supply chain, it is easy to consider what type of forward thinking statistics one might add to this video if counterfeit and adulterated pharmaceuticals were a topic. Clearly the speed of the proliferation of counterfeit medications and the necessity for forward thinking solutions are serious matters to ponder.

  • In 2006 the World Health Organization estimated counterfeit medications to be a $35 billion business globally.
  • In 2010 the World Health Organization estimates that business to more than double to $75 billion.
