Falsified and substandard medicines (FS) are a known public health problem. FS medicines represent various threats to patients: they may contain an insufficient amount or no active ingredient, or dangerous ingredients. Drug resistance, treatment failure and death have been associated with these products. While the prevalence in developed markets is likely below 1%, it is estimated that up to and more than 15% of all drugs sold in developing countries constitute a threat to patients. Many factors facilitate the spread of FS medicines. One of the most important, in developing countries, is the need for strong national drug regulation. Added to the complexity in finding effective solutions is that falsified medicines are manufactured and sold by criminal individuals and organizations, exploiting weak national legislation and enforcement, and an unsuspecting and uninformed public.
