Track/Trace Solutions For The Healthcare And Pharmaceutical Industries
According to the California Department of Consumer Affairs Board of Pharmacy, "Counterfeit prescription drugs are a worldwide problem, reaching as high as 30 percent of the supply in some countries. The World Health Organization estimates that in developed countries, counterfeit drugs are less than 1 percent of the market." In other words, "3.4 billion prescriptions were dispensed in the US in 2006. If 1 percent of this supply is counterfeit, this would mean that perhaps 34 million of these US prescriptions were filled with counterfeit medicine."
