India who played the role of “Pharmacy to the world” during the Covid-19 pandemic was also termed as the world’s leading producer of fake drugs, according to research by the OECD and the EU Intellectual Property Office.
India engulfed by the covid-19 pandemic pushed people to rush to markets to get medicines, oxygen cylinders, masks, PPE kits and other essential life-saving equipments. The covid-19 crisis and an acute shortage of drugs & medical devices to treat symptoms of Covid-19 has unfortunately increased the circulation of counterfeit medicines and medical devices in recent times.
While COVID-19 is a current pandemic, Counterfeiting is an ongoing menace.
One of the important factor behind the increase of counterfeit medicines and medical devices is the absence of anti-tampering, anti-counterfeiting & traceability measures making the counterfeiters task quite easy. In countries like India, where health and medicine literacy in society is not yet fully developed, healthcare brands have an even bigger role to play compared to their counterparts in the developed world.
