Safer Pharma for the World

Drug traceability and the fight against counterfeit medicine

by Corinne du Chaxel

100,000 people die every year from using counterfeit drugs. Illicit drugs represent a rapidly growing, worldwide threat and a global market, valued at $200bn. This is a major issue for all the stakeholders in the pharmaceuticals value chain because until now, there has been no unique and reliable way of tracing drugs from the factory to the retailer, provider, etc.
